New Mediterranean Biodiversity Records (July 2015)

The Collective Article ‘New Mediterranean Biodiversity Records’ of the Mediterranean Marine Science journal offers the means to publish biodiversity records in the Mediterranean Sea. The current



Some marine gastropods first recorded from Antalya Bay, Turkey (the Mediterranean Sea)

Seventeen gastropod species, occurring in the western part of the Antalya Bay, and not previously indicated from the Mediterranean coasts of Turkey were presented, all of which are included in the

Rissooidea Species Distributed along the Turkish Levantine Coast

Two Rissooidea species are new records for the Levantine coast of Turkey and a small number of species were encountered at rocky and mussel biotopes, while the remaining ones were encountered in soft substrata.

The identity of Murex tubercularis Montagu, 1803 and description of one new genus and two new species of the Cerithiopsidae (Gastropoda: Triphoroidea)

The new genus Nanopsis, with type species Cerithiopsis nana Jeffreys, 1867, is proposed along with the new species Nanopsis buzzurroi and Nanopsis denticulata, to introduce general protoconch characters basically conforming to those of the type species.

Indo-pacific migrants into the Mediterranean. 4. Cerithidium diplax (Watson, 1886) and Cerithidium perparvulum (Watson, 1886) (Gastropoda, Caenogastropoda)

It is shown that there are two different Cerithidium species of Indo-Pacific origin living in the Mediterranean. These are to be named Cerithidium diplax (Watson, 1886) and Cerithidium perparvulum

Additional records of the alien gastropod, Ergalatax junionae Houart, 2008 (Gastropoda: Muricidae), from the eastern Mediterranean.

The chronology of its recorded observations suggests that it was first introduced to eastern Turkey via shipping, and was then spread in the Levantine Sea, and the recent record from Greece indicates that its range of distribution is still expanding.

On a collection of Opisthobranchia from Turkey

The collection is rather small, comprising 25 species, which is probably only a fraction of the total Opisthobranchiate fauna of Turkey, but examination of the collection yielded some surprising facts.

Marine molluscs of the Turkish coasts: an updated checklist

Of the 1065 mollusc taxa, 118 species are alien ones that originated outside the Mediterranean Sea, and 27 species have been classified in the IUCN Red List or Barcelona/Bern Conventions.

Mollusc Fauna of Iskenderun Bay with a Checklist of the Region

This study was performed to determine the molluscs distributed in Iskenderun Bay (Levantine Sea). For this purpose, the material collected from the area between the years 2005 and 2009, within the

Indo-Pacific gastropod species in the Levantine and Aegean Seas

The present study reports the occurrence of three Indo-Pacific gastropod species at new localities in the Mediterranean Sea and the morphological, ecological and distributional characteristics of these species are described.


A survey of the Mediterranean molluscan fauna of Israel and the Sinai Peninsula was undertaken and 702 species have been recorded, the great majority of which were recorded from the Western Mediterranean.
