Abstract
New records of alien and cryptogenic invertebrate marine species in Libya are reported here based on field surveys conducted from June to November 2018, in a shallow bay next to the city of Tripoli. Those identified here include the cerithiid gastropod Cerithium scabridum Philippi, 1848, the goniodoridid sea slug Okenia longiductis Pola, Paz-Sedano, Macali, Minchin, Marchini, Vitale, Licchelli and Crocetta, 2019, the “spaghetti bryozoan” Amathia verticillata (delle Chiaje, 1822), and the ascidian Symplegma brakenhielmi (Michaelsen, 1904).
