Summary: We record 19 species of gastropod and 25 species of bivalve from Pleistocene sediment recovered from Ocean Drilling Programme core site 1119 at 393 m deep in the Canterbury Bight. These are additional to the 15 species of larger gastropod and 5 species of larger bivalve previously recorded from this drill core. Most of the molluscs recorded here are still living today in mud on the upper slope (200-600 m) around New Zealand.
