Abstract
    The macrozoobenthos of Southern Black Sea coast (Turkey) was quantitatively investigated in May-July 1999. Samples taken at 39 stations (13-79 m depth range) provided the basis for the analysis of the distribution of 130 species and 6335 individuals of benthic invertebrates, as well as of their abundance and biomass. Most common species in the studied soft bottoms were, by numbers of individuals, Melinna palmata, Lentidium mediterraneum, Lucinella divaricata and Chamelea gallina. The polychaets Micronephths cf. maryae, Aricidea fragilis mediterranea, and Chone filicaudata for the entire Black Sea coast and Eumida sanguinea, Mysta picta, and Prionospio (Prionospio) steenstrupi represents new records for the Turkish Black Sea coast.
