This study reports four vesicomyid species of the bathyal zone collected in sediment samples off the Mauritanian continental slope. One species is described as new: Isorropodon arguinensis spec. nov. Three bathyal species Waisiuconcha haeckeli, Isorropodon curtum, Callogonia mauritanica are already known from Mauritania and all four are most likely endemic to the continental slope of Mauritania.
