Abstract

This study is based on the results of a benthos survey of soft bottoms along the Black Sea coasts of Turkey in May-July 1999. Benthos sampling was conducted at depths of 13-79 m at 30 stations. A total of 30 macrobenthic species of Crustacea was identified. The most common species in there soft bottoms are, by numbers of individuals, Pseudocuma longicornis (Bate, 1858), Iphinoe elisae (Bacescu, 1950), Iphinoe tenella G. O. Sars, 1878, Ampelisca diadema (A. Costa, 1853), Bathyporeia guilliamsoniana (Bate, 1857), and Perioculodes longimanus longimanus (Bate & Westwood, 1868). Megamphopus cornutus Norman, 1869, Ampelisca pseudosarsi Bellan-Santini & Kaim-Malka, 1977, Megaluropus massiliensis Ledoyer, 1976, and Monoculodes griseus Della Valle, 1893 represent new records for the Crustacea fauna of the Turkish Black Sea coast.
