Two specimens of the exotic gastropod Rhinoclavis kochi (Philippi, 1848), Fam. Cerithiidae), with the coarse sculpture characteristic for the variety recurva (Sowerby, 1855), are here reported for the first time from the Eastern Mediterranean. The specimens were collected by the late Kalman Hertz on the most southern beach of Yafo, near Bat-Yam, Israel, on 15 August 2001.
