Abstract
    Examination of fossil and Recent specimens from the Sicilian area belonging to the Phylactella labrosa 'complex' revealed two new species: P. mediterranea sp. nov., a Pleistocene-to-Recent taxon and P. megarensis sp. nov., from Pleistocene sediments from eastern Sicily. Ecological, geographical and stratigraphical distribution of both new species are discussed also in comparison with P. labrosa.
