This paper reports new records of Didogobius splechtnai Ahnelt et Patzner, 1995 along the French Mediterranean coast. Additional comments on older underwater observations of D. schlieweni Miller, 1993 are also provided. The status of rarity of these two species is discussed. D. splechtnai is probably regularly distributed in the north-western and eastern Mediterranean where suitable habitats are available but both species are considered as rare (D. splechtnai) to very rare (D. schlieweni).
