Abstract
    The present paper reports on two specimens of Calliostoma gubbiolii, trawled by Belgian fishermen (PEMARCO), off Quicombo (North Angola) in the second half of the previous century. This confirms the important range extension mentioned by Rolán & Ryall (1999). In fact, C. gubbiolii is usually only known from a relative limited area between the south of the Iberian Peninsula and the Canary Islands. It is here compared with the similar Calliostoma hernandezi Salazar & Gubbioli, 1993, which cohabits in the southern part of its geographic area and at the same depth.
