    A single, empty shell of Morula aspera is reported from the beach of Shiqmona, south of Haifa, Israel. This is the first record of this lndo-Pacific species from the Mediterranean coast of Israel. It had already been reported from the Mediterranean Sea in 2013 when two juvenile specimens were collected in the Gulf of Gabes, Tunisia.
