Diagnostic characters. Subtrigonal, extremely inequilateral shell with very short anterior side and greatly expanded posterior side; wide ventral gape; two rounded ridges from the beaks to postero-dorsal and posteroventral angles; irregularly aligned knobs over the ridges; crowded, coarse and uneven growth rugae, somewhat weaker between the ridges. Prodissoconch: not available.

Remarks. Hiatella rugosa (Linnaeus, 1767)  could prove to be a synonym of the present taxon.

Occurrence. Box-corer sample BC70 (1 specimen); cores BC06 (1), BC21 (1), BC72 (1). Maximum length: 10 mm.

Distribution and habitat. Hiatella arctica  has a wide circumpolar distribution in the northern hemisphere, and reaching southward to South Africa on the Atlantic side and to Panama on the Pacific side. It is a nesting species living attached by byssus in crevices on hard substrates, on coarse bottoms, Modiolus  beds and kelp holdfasts, from lower intertidal to upper slope depths, occasionally to 1400 m depth ( Barash & Danin 1992; Poppe & Goto 1993; Oliver et al. 2016). It was also found associated with a Sardinian deep water population of Corallium rubrum ( Crocetta & Spanu 2008)  .

Fossil record. Oligocene of northern Germany and the Netherlands; from Lower Miocene in northern and Atlantic basins; from Middle Miocene in the Mediterranean and East Europe ( Hopkins et al. 1972; Malatesta 1974; Brambilla 1976; Di Geronimo & Bellagamba 1985; Funder et al. 2001; Monegatti & Raffi 2001; Petersen 2004).
