From other sources
Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorAlien species The dwarf crab or Zuiderzee crab Rhithropanopeus harrisii originally only occurred along the east coast of America, but came to Europe through ship transport. The first European observations date from 1874, in the Netherlands. In Belgium, the first living specimens of the dwarf crab were encountered in 1991, in the Sea Scheldt near Antwerp. This crab is a typical species for fresh and brackish waters and is comfortable in estuaries. It is a predator of several types of invertebrates.  [details]
