Abra (Syndosmya) longicallus (Scacchi, 1834) — Cossignani et al. 1992 (fig. 359).
Occurrence. Box-corer samples BC04 (26 specimens), BC05 (54), BC06 (2), BC11 (4), BC41 (1), BC66 (45), BC67 (48), BC68 (1), BC70 (12), BC71 (225), BC72 (673); cores BC04 (16), BC05 (78), BC21 (49), BC51 (31), BC52 (7), BC67 (9), BC72 (81). Maximum length: 19 mm.
Distribution and habitat. The species occurs throughout the northern Atlantic and in the Mediterranean; it is a common circalittoral and bathyal element dwelling on muddy sand with low amounts of organic carbon (Buhl- Mortensen & Høisaeter 1993; Poppe & Goto 1993; Pons-Moyà & Pons 1999; Ceregato et al. 2007; Oliver et al. 2016). It was regarded as an exclusive characteristic element of VP (bathyal mud) biocoenosis (Pérès & Picard 1964; Di Geronimo 1979[a]; Di Geronimo et al. 1982). The species was found alive in the bathyal of Taranto, among the Abra-Nucula biocoenosis (Di Geronimo & Panetta 1973). In the Santa Maria di Leuca CWC biotope, it was found on muddy bottoms around coral colonies (Mastrototaro et al. 2010), being common in solitary coral, and very abundant in Gryphus-Isidella and mollusk mud thanatofacies (Rosso et al. 2010).
