Abstract
    Local mass mortality events of anthozoans and bivalves were observed along the Campania coast (Tyrrhenian Sea) in late summer 2008 and 2009 and both related to high water surface temperatures. The gorgonian Eunicella cavolinii was the damaged species inside the cave “Grotta Azzurra” off Palinuro (Salerno) in late summer 2008, while in 2009 a strong mortality was observed along the coast off the island of Ischia, affecting the gorgonians Eunicella singularis, E. cavolinii and Paramuricea clavata, as well as for the first time the thermophilic scleractinian Astroides calycularis and the bivalve Spondylus gaederopus.
