Of 69 species of Cumacea found at the Atlantic stations of the Balgim Cruise, 20 were also found at the western Mediterranean stations (Ledoyer 1988). Their vertical distribution is discussed and compared with that in the Mediterranean. Species diversity was greater in the Atlantic than in the Mediterranean. No significant differences in numbers of species or specimens were found between northern and southern stations in the Ibero-Moroccan Bay, nor between stations within the outflow from the Mediterranean and those outside it, but the species composition was certainly affected by the outflow.
