Trivia levantina n. sp. is here described from samples collected along the Turkish coasts of the Aegean Sea and the Cypriot coasts. The new species is known from shells only and it has been placed in the genus Trivia Gray J. E., 1837. Trivia spongicola Monterosato, 1923 is compared to the new taxon and confirmed to be a distinct and valid species, so far only reported from the Mediterranean african coasts. From fossil material is compared and figured Trivia subaffinis (Brugnone, 1880).
