A new species of Acanthocardia, A. sliggersi, is described from Late Pliocene (Piacenzian) and Early Pleistocene (Gelasian) deposits of the North Sea Basin. The species is closely related to Acanthocardia echinata (Pliocene-Recent, north-eastern Atlantic region). A possible recent occurrence of A. sliggersi in the Russian arctic cannot be excluded.
