Abstract
    Two samples of Neanthes succinea (Frey & Leuckart 1847) from the Mediterranean Sea were investigated. Twenty-one loci were analysed; seven of them were polymorphic in both populations. The level of heterozygosity was 2.2% and 4.4% in populations from the Tyrrhenian and Adriatic coasts respectively. The value,of Nei's genetic identity index (I=0.965), together with the mean F(IT) (=0.350), shows that the samples can be considered reproductively isolated populations. F-statistics indicate that ME-1 is the discriminant locus between populations.
