AbstractA litter sample collected during a short stay on the islet of Misali, off Pemba Island, contained several species that have not been reported before for that islet, three of which are described as new to science: Afripupa misaliensis (Vertiginidae), Pupisoma misaliensis (Valloniidae), Microcystina rowsoni (Euconulidae). Some errors in the literature on Misali are corrected and new data on several species are added.
