ABSTRACT: We present the results of investigations on Black Sea soft-walled monothalamous foraminiferans (monothalamids) in the SW part of the Sea in the Bosphorus Strait’s outlet area (April 2010), the NW and NE parts of the Crimean shelf (August 2013), and the NE part on the Caucasus shelf (July 2019). Three new monothalamid species in the subfamily Shepheardellinae in the Black Sea are described. Nemogullmia pontica sp.n. was found in the outer part of the Bosphorus Strait (252.4 m depth), as well as the Kerch Strait (90 m) and Karkynitsky gulf near cape Tarkhankut (30 m) in the NE and NW parts of the Black Sea, respectively. Nemogullmia bosphorica sp.n. originated from the Bosphorus Strait outlet area (82–135 m depth) and Nemogullmia longissima sp.n. from the region of the Kerch Strait (79–90 m depth). Several unidentified individuals of Nemogullmia were found near Cape Small Utrish region (Caucasus) at depths of 82 and 101 m.

KEY WORDS: Soft-shelled foraminifera; Nemogullmia pontica sp.n., Nemogullmia bosphorica sp.n., Nemogullmia longissima sp.n., the Black Sea.
