Abstract
    Three new species of Protricoma were found among the material collected during a deep-sea survey near Corsica: P. maramphis sp.n., P. mocrocephala sp.n. and P. corsicana sp.n. The new species are characterized by their small body size. a slender cylindrican body with finely annulated body cuticle and a very small head.
