Marine Mollusca of Rhodes, mainly from shallow' water, are presented: the total of 164 species comprises 6 species of Polyplacophora, 126 of Gastropoda, 28 of Bivalvia, and 4 species of Cephalopoda. Most species were collected on the eastern side of the island, opposite the coasts of Asia Minor. For each species found at Rhodes, documenting material is listed. Zoogeographical relationships are briefly discussed. The occurrence of 4 Indo-Pacific species in the waters of Rhodes is remarkable: they are Strombus decorus (Roeding, 1798), Erronea caurica (Linnaeus, 1758), Rapana rapiformis (Bom, 1778) and Pinctada radiata (Leach, 1814).
