Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorIntroduced species remark The references to Scolelepis korsuni as being an introduced or alien species in Norway seems to be arguable, to say the least. The species was described with base on specimens collected off Norway, and its known distribution includes the region going from the northern part of the North Sea to the Barents Sea, comprising most, if not all, of the Norwegian coast. The species seems to be native of the region, and there seems to be no data supporting an alien origin.  [details]
