Density and distribution of four species of cerianthids were recorded in three Mediterranean regions: North-West Sicily, Gulfs of Naples and Salerno, and western Ligurian Riviera. Cerianthus membranaceus was recorded in all the studied regions with sparse polyps. Pachycerianthus dohrni was recorded only in the southern regions, while P. solitarius only in the Ligurian Sea. Arachnanthus oligopodus was recorded only in the Gulf of Naples where it may reach very high densities and it is the main element of the soft bottom assemblage.
