Twenty-eight hydroid species are recorded from the eastern Mediterranean and the northern part of the Red Sea, all material originating from the collections of the Museum of the Zoological Institute, Tel-Aviv University. The collection also included four species that could only be identified to generic level. Though the majority had previously been recorded from either the Mediterranean or the Red Sea, some constitute the first definite record from Israeli coastal waters. All material has been redeposited in the Tel-Aviv collection; slides and some duplicate samples are in the collections of the National Museum of Natural History (Nationaal Natuurhistorisch Museum, now also incorporating the Rijksmuseum van Natuurlijke Historie), Leiden, the Netherlands.
