Glycymeris in the Levant Sea 1. Finds of recent Glycymeris insubrica in the south east corner of the Mediterranean Sea

Glycymeris in the Levant Sea 1. Finds of recent Glycymeris insubrica in the south east corner of the Mediterranean Sea

Triton Rehovot ch; 13: 5-9

Confusion, especially among archaeologists, concerning the presence or absence of living specimens of Glycymeris insubrica along the Mediterranean coast of Israel, has triggered a review of all the samples of that bivalve collected in the SE-corner of the Mediterranean Sea and permanently stored in the National Mollusc Collections in order to register the presence of recent specimens. At least 37% of all the samples fitted the criteria of being of recent origin. This material was collected between 1935 and 1989 all along the coasts of Israel, Palestine and Egypt. All the basic data accompanying the samples are included in the enumeration of these samples. Although the local population of G. insubrica seems to be very small, living specimens are still encountered occasionally. Follow up studies will have to show why G. insubrica has become a rare species in the Levant Sea.
