The present work is concerned with 1 Amphipod species (Tritaeta gibbosa Bate (1862)), obtained during a benthic sampling by diving at the Sinop Peninsula coasts at the depth of 22-31 m. in December 1997. 43 species of marine Crustacea Amphipoda are now known to occur in the Black Sea coast of Turkey. However, the Amphipod Tritaeta gibbosa Bate (1862) is new for the Black Sea of Turkish coastal waters.
