The species belonging to the genus Chauvetia Monterosato, 1884 are revised for the area including Andalucía, southern Portugal and Morocco. Twelve species are recognized in this area, of which four are described as new, two with a type locality in the Strait of Gibraltar and two with a type locality in northwestern Morocco. The Strait of Gibraltar holds the highest diversity for the genus in Europe, with up to eight species potentially occurring in the same sample.
