Abstract
    Recent brachiopods were co1lected in submarine caves along the Croatian coast of the Adriatic Sea. In a karstic cave at U Privlaka, Losinj Island, the micromorphic brachiopod Gwynia capsula (JEFFREYS, 1859) has been found for the first time in the Mediterranean Sea. In the same cave, the rhynchonellid brachiopod, Tethyrhynchia mediterranea LOGAN, 1994, is also abundant. The geographic distribution of these two species is now considerably extended.
