Albayrak, S.; Çağlar, S. (2006). On the presence of Siphonaria belcheri Hanley, 1858 [Gastropoda: Siphonariidae] and Septifer bilocularis (Linnaeus, 1758) [Bivalvia: Mytilidae] in the Iskenderun Bay (SE Turkey). Aquatic Invasions. 1(4): 292-294.
Siphonaria belcheri and Septifer bilocularis were reported from Iskenderun Bay in 2001. But they were considered as misidentifications of Siphonaria crenata and Septifer forskali respectively, in the CIESM Atlas of Exotic Species. The present study, carried out in 2005-2006, indicates the presence of these two alien molluscs in Iskenderun Bay, Turkey.
