Abstract

Data suggest that the prosobranch gastropod Echinolittorina punctata (Gmelin, 1791) (Mollusca, Gastropoda) has extended its range northwards along the Italian coastline due to climate variability in marine conditions. Its ease of identification and mesolittoral habitat suggest this species may be a new practical indicator of Mediterranean Sea changing conditions, easy to monitor.
