The recovery of the name Eubranchus capellinii (Trinchese 1879) is proposed by providing new data on the species. This species is compared with Eubranchus doriae (Trinchese 1873) with which it has previously been considered synonymous.
Eubranchus capellinii is also compared with two other similar species of Eubranchus from the Atlantic, Eubranchus arci Ortea 1980 and Eubranchus telesforoi Ortea, Caballer & Bacallado 2002, with respect to external features, colouration, radula and jaws.
