Notes 
From other sources
Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorAlien species The freshwater hydroid Cordylophora caspia occurs in both fresh and brackish water. The hydroid naturally occurs around the Caspian and Black Sea. By attaching itself to ship hulls and/or floating material (e.g. plant debris) this polyp has spread to the brackish waters of Western Europe through rivers and channels. The first European report was along the Swedish coast in 1814. This coelenterate was observed in Belgium for the first time in 1905, in Nieuwpoort.  [details]
