[A review of the relevant literature and a comparative study of adequate samples from the Mediterranean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean, revealed new key morphological features that facilitate a distinction of the Mediterranean species of Xanthidae. Based on this study, the Mediterranean Xantho granulicarpus Forest, 1953 is clearly distinguished from the Atlantic Xantho hydrophilus (Herbst, 1790) and Monodaeus guinotae Forest, 1976 is identical with Monodaeus couchii (Couch, 1851). For the species studied, additional information is given about their geographical distribution, as well as an identification key based on selected, constant features. Literaturstudien und vergleichende Untersuchungen geeigneter Proben aus dem Mittelmeer und dem Atlantischen Ozean haben neuen morphologische Schlüsselmerkmale erbrqacht, die eine Unterscheidung der aus dem Mittelmeer stmmenden Arten der Xanthidae erleichtern. Als Ergebnis dieser Untersuchungen kann gesagt werden, dass Xantho granulicarpus Forest, 1953 aus dem Mittelmeer klar von Xantho hydrophilus (Herbst, 1790) aus dem Atlantik unterschieden ist und dass Monodaeus guinotae Forest, 1976 identisch mit Monodaeus couchii (Couch, 1851) ist. Für die untersuchten Arten werden zusätzliche Verbreitungsangaben gemacht und ein Bestimmungsschlüssel auf der Grundlage ausgewählter konstanter Merkmale bereitgestellt., A review of the relevant literature and a comparative study of adequate samples from the Mediterranean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean, revealed new key morphological features that facilitate a distinction of the Mediterranean species of Xanthidae.
