Ammothella appendiculata ( Dohrn, 1881 )


Ammothella appendiculata ( Dohrn, 1881)  

This species was encountered once only in our material; it tolerates moderate pollution ( Arnaud 1987) as at the sampling site in Gencelli Cove. It is a rather rare faunal element in the Mediterranean, which is in line with our record.
