Abstract

The first record of C. scalpelliformis (Brown ex Turner) C. Agardh from Antalya harbour (36°53'.1 N, 030°42'.2 E) is reported here. The species was found in the year 1995, in the period August-September, when seawater temperature reached 26.5 to 27°C. After this time, the species seemed to disappear, probably because of low winter temperatures. Thus, the occurrence of this species in Antalya harbour should be considered temporary, not as an indication of the expansion of the distribution area of this lessepsian species in the Mediterranean Sea.
