    This report deals with the recent findings along the coasts of eastern Mediterranean of several species of Mollusca which had not been so far published in the various notes written on the malacological fauna of the Mediterranean waters of Israel and neighbouring countries. Also, a supplementary list of 12 Mollusca recently found in the same area and identified as Indo-Pacific immigrants into the Mediterranean is published bringing their up-to-date number to 104. Some 30-odd species, also found in the eastern Mediterranean and in all likelihood immigrants from the Indo-Pacific province, still wait definite identification. The number of these species is therefore expected to increase steadily in the course of time.
