Distribution of Admete contabulata and Iphinopsis inflata in the Arctic (Gastropoda: Cancellariidae)

Ivan O. Nekhaev


Only four species of the family Cancellariidae had been reported from the Arctic. However, known distribution of three of them had been limited to
the extreme north of the eastern Atlantic so far. The present paper describes findings of Admete contabulata Friele, 1879 from the Barents and the Kara seas and Iphinopsis inflata (Friele, 1879) from the Pacific part of
the Arctic Ocean. Lectotype for Admete contabulata is here designated.
