Amphipoda note details

The known distribution of T. platycheles in the Mediterranean is patchy. There are no records of Talitrus along the southern coast of Spain or the south-western Mediterranean coast of France. Talitrus platycheles is known from Venice, Adriatic Sea (this paper). Sezgin & Kataðan (2007) reported T. saltator from the Black Sea. Based on records of T. platycheles from the Aegean Sea we consider the record of Sezgin & Kataðan (2007) to most likely represent T. platycheles. Talitrus platycheles is known from the Canary Islands (Chevreux 1893) and along the coast of Morocco (Charfi & El Gitari 2008), Algeria (Chevreux 1893) and Tunisia from Tabarka in the west to the Gulf of Hammamet in the east (based on samples from Dr El Gtari and Dr Faouzia Charfi). There are no records from Tunisia east of the Gulf of Hammamet. Western Mediterranean (France, Sardinia, Corsica), Ligurian and Tyrrhenian Sea (Liguria, Tuscany); Adriatic sea (Venice, unconfirmed records fromMontenegro, Veneto, Emilia-Romagna, Apulia); western Peloponnese (Methoni); northern Aegean Sea (Anaifi, Astipálea, Kos, Tilos); ? Black Sea; North Africa (Algeria, Tunisia); Canary Islands.
