Abstract
    The cephalaspidean Haminaea callidegenita Gibson and Chia, 1989, described from the Pacific Ocean, is recorded for the first time in localities outside that ocean: Atlantic and Mediterranean European shores. The introduction of marine molluscs for commercial culture in these areas is the most likely reason explaining the presence of this species in the European coasts.
