Bellottia apoda Giglioli, 1883 and Symphurus ligulatus (Cocco, 1844) are recorded for the first time in the Eastern Mediterranean (Bay of Antalya, Turkey). Meristic and morphometric characters of the specimens are given. These findings extend eastward the distribution range of B. apoda and confirm the presence of S. ligulatus in the Levant Basin of the Mediterranean Sea.
