From the Arctic A. elliptica-complex: A. elliptica (Brown, 1827), A. neocrassa n. sp., A. longa n. sp., A. vaigati n. sp. In the Baltic Sea the former"A. borealis"complex has been substituted by 6 species: A. bornholmi n. sp., A. silki n. sp., A. belti n. sp., A. fjordi n. sp., A. falsteri n. sp., A. nordi n. sp. Part of the Baltic A. elliptica/A. sulcata-complex is studied: A. elliptica (Brown, 1827), A. anholti n. sp., A. klinti n. sp. and A. sulcata (da Costa 1778).
