Abstract
    This is the authors' second survey on Indo-Pacific species in the Mediterranean. 13 additional Indo-Pacific species found there are recorded for the first time (Gastropoda - 9, Bivalvia - 4). Chiton platei is the first representative of Indo-Pacific chitonids in the Mediterranean. Supplementary data were given for 24 Indo-Pacific species in the Mediterranean recorded previously. Egg masses were found of the Indo-Pacific Cerithium kochi, which is now the most abundant species in the Mediterranean waters of Israel. A discussion is presented on the distribution of the 68 Indo-Pacific species known hitherto from the Mediterranean. The majority of them (59) are concentrated along the Mediterranean coast of Israel and Sinai Peninsula.
