In July 2009, larvae of Lampetra sp. were caught in the river Deva, northern Spain. This first record of this genus in the Cantabrian coast represents a significant extension of its range in the Iberian Peninsula. The analyses of two mitochondrial genes and some morphologic and meristic characters confirmed the identification of the genus.
