Article
Full-text available
The mollusc fauna of the Mediterranean Sea is still considered as the best-known marine mollusc fauna in the world. The previous modern checklists of marine Mollusca were produced by joint teams of amateurs and professionals. During the last years the Italian Society of Malacology (Società Italiana di Malacologia – S.I.M.) maintained an updated ver...

Full-text available
Notodiaphana atlantica and Liloa mongii are two cephalaspidean species described respectively from the Atlantic Ocean and the Red Sea, and considered widespread in their native ranges. Both species have also been recently recorded from the Mediterranean Sea, prompting some authors to consider them alien. Notwithstanding clear morphological differen...
Article
We have compiled a complete list of new marine molluscan taxa introduced by Tommaso Allery Di Maria, Marquis of Monterosato (1841–1927). The dates of publication of every single work have been checked against available evidence, and an updated bibliography is also presented. Finally, the type material of all marine taxa expected to be in the collec...

Full-text available
A review of the scientific literature and an analysis of unpublished material identified ~ 50 possible alien molluscs from Greece, four of which were newly reported here. Records of ~ 100 additional taxa, which would strongly inflate the alien species numbers, were excluded. Among the ~ 50 candidate species, 43 were confirmed as alien and 12 as cry...

Full-text available
According to the most recently published articles and reviews, 17 extant species belonging to the family Philinidae J.E. Gray, 1850 (1815) sensu lato occur in the Mediterranean Sea. Among them, Philine striatula Monterosato, 1874 ex Jeffreys ms. is presumably the least known Mediterranean taxon and has a long history of published misidentifications...
Article
Full-text available
The biodiversity of the Mediterranean Sea is threatened by an ever increasing pressure from alien species, among which Mollusca are playing a leading role with more than 200 species enumerated. Within the Bivalvia, dementia papyracea (Gmelin, 1791) is amongst one of the least recorded Mediterranean invaders, only known on the basis of one living sp...
Article
Full-text available
To date, the knowledge of the biodiversity of Cretan Archipelago sea slugs and shelled relatives is poor in comparison to other parts of the Greek seas and to the Mediterranean Sea in general. Based on an extensive review of literature data, complemented by recent field observations, we provide an updated checklist of 81 taxa from the Cretan Archip...
Article
Full-text available
The opening of the Suez Canal in 1869 has led to the colonisation of the Mediterranean Sea by a large number of tropical/subtropical species, including several sea slugs and shelled relatives. Among them, the Red Sea taxon Retusa desgenettii (Audouin, 1826) is a well known Lessepsian invader, being first recorded from the Suez Canal and subsequentl...
Article

The present paper records some noteworthy gastropod species at Cala Iris, a cove on the coast of Torres de Alcalá (= Torres el Kal'a, 35°10' N, 04°19' W), Medirerranean Morocco. These species belong to the families Diastomatidae Cossmann, 1893, Rissoidae J.E. Gray, 1847, Eulimidae H. Adams & A. Adams, 1853, Buccinidae Rafinesque, 1815, Marginellida...
Article
Full-text available
The present work is an attempt to update the check-list of the Mediterranean species of Pyrunculus Pilsbry, 1895. The species have been ascribed to the genus on the base of: (a) the small sized bubble-shell, characteristically pear-shaped; (b) the gizzard plates (three), subtriangular in shape, corneous, light brown coloured, with two darker blunt...
Article
Full-text available
The project for a revision of the types of marine species described by T. Di Maria, known as Monterosato, kept in the Museo Civico di Zoologia, Roma (ZMR) is presented, with the purpose of providing a clear check-list of these types with the best possible iconography. The problems encountered while carrying out the project are reported, together wi...
Article
Full-text available
Lepidochitona canariensis (Thiele, 1909) is here recorded from Torres de Alcalá, Mediterranean Morocco, on the basis of 10 specimens, found among the algae epibiontic on Patella nigra Da Costa, 1771. The present record widens the known range of L. canariensis - known up to date from the Canary Islands and Madeira - including the Western Mediterrane...
Article
Full-text available
The pyramidellid Brachystomia lorellae (Micali, 1987) [combinatio nova] is recorded for the Eastern Mediterranean basin, from Astypalea Island (Cyclades Islands, Aegean Sea). Forty-two specimens were collected inside crabbed shells of large sized gastropods - Bolma, Phalium, Cassidaria - presumably parasitizing Crepidula unguiformis Lamarck, 1822,...
Article
Full-text available
The occurrence of the Indo-Pacific gastropod Palisadia subulata C.F. Laseron, 1956, is recorded from Sanganeb Reef, off Port Sudan, Sudan. The known distribution of the species is considerably extended eastward, including the Red Sea basin.
Article
Full-text available
The identity of the Indo-Pacific Anachis (Zafra) spp. recorded from the Eastern Mediterranean is here discussed. The synonymy of A. (Z.) troglodytes (Souverbie in Souverbie & Montrouzier, 1866) with A. (Z.) savignyi (Moazzo, 1939, ex Jousseume ms.), proposed by Palazzi (1993) is rejected. A. savignyi is regarded as the Lessepsian Anachis known sinc...

Full-text available
It is here recorded the finding of an undetermined Indo-Pacific species of the genus Sticteulima C.F. Laseron, 1955, from Southern Turkey. The occurrence of the same species in the Red Sea – Egypt and Sudan - suggests its immigration throughout the Suez Canal (Lessepsian migration).
Article
Full-text available
Riassunto L'esame della struttura radulare mostra come Nassarius gibbosulus e N. circumcinctus siano da ritenersi specie distinte, probabilmente 'sibling species': i laterali di circumcinctus sono infatti denticolati, mentre sono semplici in gibbosulus. I parametri dimensionali delle rispettive protocon-che sembrano indicare inoltre differenze nell...

Full-text available
Malacological records from the Turkish coasts (Gastropoda, Polyplacophora, Bivalvia) The presence of three recently described Mediterranean species is pointed out from the Southern Turkish, together with some Indo-Pacific hosts, some of which never recorded in this area. Comments on some species are furnished, and the first record of Lepidopleurus...

Project
The project is shared by a team of malacologists. The goal is to find, catalogue (and publish within a report) all the type material of the marine molluscan species introduced by Monterosato (the most important Italian malacologist of the late XIX sec.) still recovered in the Monterosato collection, now at the Museo Civico di Zoologia, Roma.
