Abstract

Heretofore, the pinnotherid crab, Afropinnotheres monodi, had been recorded only from African waters. The range is now extended into European waters with discovery of material in the Gulf of Cádiz. Furthermore, early collections of material had occurred only in open water; now three hosts can be assigned, the clams Scrobicularia plana, Ruditapes decussatus and Cerastoderma glaucum. Further discoveries of this pinnotherid may now be expected, especially along the coast of Portugal.
