Abstract

Four adult males and one ovigerous female of Albunea carabus were taken during quantitative sampling carried out in the northern area of the Messina Straits. This is the first record of the species for the southern Tyrrhenian Sea. The substratum was identified as the Biocoenosis of Coarse Sand and Fine Gravels under Bottom Currents (SGCF, Pérès & Picard, 1964) and hypotheses on the species' habitat are discussed. Finally, new data on the maximum size of the species are provided. /// Cinque esemplari di Albunea carabus (quattro maschi adulti e una femmina ovigera) sono stati catturati, nell'ottobre 1992, nell'area settentrionale dello Stretto di Messina. Si tratta della prima segnalazione riguardante il Mar Tirreno meridionale. In questa nota vengono riportate ipotesi sull'habitat della specie, identificato nella Biocenosi delle Sabbie Grossolane e Ghiaie Fini sottoposte all'azione delle Correnti di Fondo (SGCF di Pérès & Picard, 1964). Infine vengono forniti nuovi dati sulle dimensioni massime della specie.
