Mocha, Yemen

Mocha known as al-Makha, is a port city on the Red Sea coast of Yemen. Until Aden and al Hudaydah eclipsed it in the 19th century, Mocha was the principal port for Yemen's capital, Sanaʽa. Mocha is famous for being the major marketplace for coffee from the 15th century until the early 18th century. After other sources of coffee were found, Mocha beans continued to be prized for their distinctive flavor—and remain so today; the coffee itself did not grow in Mocha, but was transported from places inland to the port in Mocha, where it was shipped abroad. According to the Portuguese Jesuit missionary Jerónimo Lobo, who sailed the Red Sea in 1625, Mocha was "formerly of limited reputation and trade" but since "the Turkish assumption of power throughout Arabia, it has become the major city of the territory under Turkish domination though it is not the Pasha's place of residence, two days' journey inland in the city of Sana'a." Lobo adds that its importance as a port was due to the Ottoman law that required all ships entering the Red Sea to put in at Mocha and pay duty on their cargoes.

Mocha reached its zenith in the 17th century. The city boasted a stone wall enclosing a citadel, as well as a labyrinth of thatched huts that surrounded the wall from without. Of these, some four hundred accommodated Jewish households. Passing through Mocha in 1752 and 1756, Remedius Prutky found that it boasted a "lodging-house of the Prophet Muhammad, like a huge tenement block laid out in many hundred separate cells where accommodation was rented to all strangers without discrimination of race or religion." He found a number of European ships in the harbor: three French, four English, two Dutch, one Portuguese. In the 18th century, a plague killed half of the city's population, from which time the city never recovered. English and French companies maintained factories at Mocha, which remained a major emporium and coffee exporting port until the early 19th century. In August 1800 Phoenix visited. William Moffat, her captain, took the opportunity to prepare a chart of the mouth of the Red Sea.

Mocha was dependent on imported coffee beans from present-day Ethiopia, exported by Somali merchants from Berbera across the Gulf of Aden. The Berbera merchants procured most of the coffee from the environs of Harar and shipped them off in their own vessels during the Berbera trading season. In December 1820, HMS Topaze and ships and troops belonging to the British East India Company attacked the North and South Forts, destroying them; the action was in pursuit of British demands on the government of the city. A decade and a half Ibrahim Pasha of Egypt would attack the city and destroy its fortified wall closest to the sea, as well as its citadel. However, by that time, Mocha's trade in its country's precious commodity of coffee grains had been supplanted by Ethiopia, the principal trader of this commodity to North Africa and which sold for a third of the price of the same coffee imported from Arabia. Diplomat Edmund Roberts visited Mocha in the 1830s, he noted. The Turks took it over after they left Egypt while being disgruntled with the rule of Muhammad Ali of Egypt.

These "rebels", consisting of confederates throughout Arabia, had banded together under one leader named Turkie ben al Mas. Jacob Saphir who visited the city in 1859 wrote about seeing many houses that were vacant of dwellers, although the Turkish governor still dwelt there with a band of soldiers, collecting taxes from local traders and ships visiting the harbor; when the British took control over Aden, the port in Mocha fell into disuse. The general destruction of the city was still prominent as late as 1909, when German explorer and photographer, Hermann Burchardt, wrote of the city Mocha as he saw it: “This card will reach you from one of the most godforsaken little places in Asia, it exceeds all my expectations, with regard to the destruction. It looks like a city destroyed by earthquakes, etc.”Mocha was among the population centers in southern Yemen taken over by the Houthis during their military offensive in March 2015. The city was attacked by pro-Hadi forces in January 2017 and captured by pro-Hadi forces in February 2017.

At present, Mocha is no longer utilized as a major trade route and the current local economy is based upon fishing and a small number of tourists. The village of Mocha was relocated 3 kilometres west along the Red Sea shore to accommodate the building and demolition of several coastal highways. Köppen-Geiger climate classification system classifies its climate as hot desert.

Phanerolepida transenna

Phanerolepida transenna is a rare species of sea snail, a marine gastropod mollusk in the family Turbinidae, the turban snails. It is the sole living species in this genus; the small, carinated shell has a sturdy turbinate shape. It is inflated on the base and sculptured, its color pattern is yellowish with small ruddy spots. The sculpture consists of spirals with quasi unique net-like, finely incised rhombohedral patterns. A similar surface pattern appears in Homalopoma granuliferum" Nomura & Hatai, 1940. Close to the suture is a row of disconnected beads. Between this and the carina are three rows of appressed beads, of which the highest is the weakest; these four rows are parted from one another by furrows, each of, a little broader than the thread above it. The carina consists of a row of appressed beads, it is stronger than the other beads both in breadth and height, the furrow above it is a little broader and deeper than the rest. On the base are seven rows of appressed beads of nearly equal width and distance from one another.

These rows of beads make their appearance on the second whorl, on all the upper whorls more than on the body whorl. The carina is expressed by a constriction above and below it. Longitudinals—the whole surface is crossed obliquely by not quite contiguous threads, which are as strong as the spirals. Between the threads are narrow, long pits; each alternate thread is crowned by a bead at the suture. Color: the surface is dull and rough, sparsely spotted on the spirals with a ruddy brown, crimson on the infra-sutural beads; the spire is high and conical, the whorls being rounded. The apex is small but flattened, the embryonic 1¼ whorls scarcely project; the seven whorls increase in size in a regular manner. They are flat, while the body whorl alone is convex and carinated at the periphery and tumid on the base, in the center of, a most minute umbilical chink; the suture is and squarely impressed below the carina. The aperture is oblique and nacreous; the outer lip is thin slightly descending, drawn in a little horizontally at its junction with the body, well rounded in its whole sweep to the point of the columellar lip, near which it is externally crenulated by the ends of the basal threads.

The columella is short, straight tubercled on its inner side, hardly toothed in front, still less angulated at its junction with the outer lip. The columellar lip is thin excavated longitudinally, reverted on the minute umbilicus, which it wholly conceals. Behind it is a narrow furrow; the thin operculum has a concave-convex shape with no visible external spirals. The callus is extensively developed; this deep-water species occurs off the Philippines and Japan between 600 m and 800 m. To World Register of Marine Species
