Abstract
    Of the two species of Charonia living in the Mediterranean Sea, C. lampas lampas is distributed in the western basin, C. tritonis variegata in the eastern. In the Gulf of Naples C. lampas lampas. is mainly caught by fishermen on a number of offshore shoals characterized by sciophilous communities of <>. Historically the species is considered uncommon in the waters of the Gulf and no evidence has arisen to warrant considering the species in danger of extinction today.
