A find of an empty, but fresh looking juvenile shell of Fissidentalium rectum (Gmelin, 1791), family Dentaliidae, is here reported from off Haifa, Israel, where it had been taken from a depth of 1500 m. This Tusk shell is according to Caprotti (1978) a fossil species, which lived in the Mediterranean Basin during the Middle & Upper Pliocene and the Pleistocene. Additional finds, especially of life material, have to show whether it is still living at great depths in the Eastern Mediterranean.
