A single specimen of the species Meoma ventricosa grandis GRAY, 1851, from the lower Pliocene-Marcos Formation beds of Carmen Island in the Gulf of California was studied. It constitutes a new fossil record of the subspecies in the early Pliocene of Mexico. The specimen was found associated with calcareous algae, corals, bivalves (Pecten and Chlione) and other echinoids. The paleontological setting for this fauna was that of a shallow and tropical sea.
