Özet

The present work deals with alien molluscs recorded at three stations along the Levantine coast of Turkey between the years 2010 and 2014. Out of 14 identified species, Lodderia novemcarinata, Eratoena sulcifera,Zafra obesula and Zafra pumila are new records for the Mediterranean Sea, whereas the other species, i.e., Finella pupoides, Cerithiopsis pulvis, Cerithiopsis tenthrenois, Rissoina ambigua, Rissoina bertholeti, Pseudorhaphitoma iodolabiata, Pyrgulina maiae, Cingulina isseli, Pyrunculus fourierii and Septifer cumingii, are alien molluscs previously reported from the area. In the investigated material have been also encountered two rarely distributed gastropod species: Colubraria reticulata and Vexillum hypatiae. The present study deals with the new record alien species, and herein are provided some data on the taxonomy, ecology and distribution of the species, with their colour photographs. The study also includes the photographs of Colubraria reticulata and Vexillum hypatiae.
