Euthecosomatous gastropods are recorded from eight localities in the Karaman Basin (Turkey, provinces of Konya and Mersin). Seven of these samples, all from localities close to Karaman, together yielded a total of six pteropod species, allowing an age assignment of (Middle-Late) Serravallian. One sample, from a locality near Mut, c. 70 km SSE of Karaman, is demonstrated to be of Langhian-Early Serravallian age. Diacrolinia larandaensis sp. nov. is described.
