Notes 
From regional or thematic species database
Trusted: edited by a thematic editorIntroduced species remark In South Africa (Nation) : This species is known from rocks, oyster shells, pilings, floats, oil platforms, ships' hulls, and fouling plates. It is tolerant of copper and mercury antifouling paints and has outcompeted congeneric species in some areas of its introduced range. [details]

Trusted: edited by a thematic editorIntroduced species vector dispersal in Mexico (Nation) : Ships: accidental as attached or free-living fouling organisms
This organism has a short planktonic stage (Gordon and Mawatari 1992; Cohen and Carlton 1995) suggesting that ship fouling is its likeliest mode of transport to most locations.  [details]

Trusted: edited by a thematic editorIntroduced species vector dispersal in Bay of Biscay (IHO Sea Area) : Fisheries: accidental with deliberate translocations of fish or shellfish
Most of the collection sites were located near oyster-culture operations, and this species was most likely introduced to Europe with the Pacific Oyster (Crassostrea gigas) (Ryland et al. 2009).  [details]
