Scaphopoda from the Spanish coasts

Steiner, Gerhard

The scaphopod molluscs collected at 29 stations of the Fauna Iberica projects I - III along the entire Spanish mainland coast and the Balearic Islands belong to 12 species from 7 genera and 5 families. These species are listed together with their synonyms, original descriptions, and geographic and bathymetric ranges in this material and from the literature. None of the species are found to extend either range in these samples. On the other hand, some otherwise common scaphopods are not represented. Some of the species have extensive fossil records, and in Entalina tetragona and Antalis inaequicostata, problems of synonymy and historical biogeography are discussed.
