Evidence of predation on the recent ostracod populations of Nador lagoon (Morocco) and El Melah lagoon (Tunisia), two semi-arid coastal areas of North Africa, is scarce. However, rare, bored valves have been extracted from the inner, very restricted areas of both lagoons. All these valves present cylindrical boreholes, an ichnofossil known as Oichnus simplex Bromley, 1981, near the central muscular field. Borehole diameters are not correlated with the dimensions the (length, height) of the bored valves. Predation had apparently focused on the adults and the last juvenile stages of either smooth, or punctuated species of ostracods.
