From other sources
Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorAlien species Tubificoides heterochaetus is an oligochaete worm that was first reported in Belgian waters in 1952 in the Scheldt esturay. It is not certain where the species originates from and how it reached Belgian regions. It is assumed that originally the species occurred naturally in estuaries along the north Atlantic coasts. However it's also possible that the species has always been present in Belgian waters but until recently remained undiscovered. Therefore, the species is considered cryptogenic by some scientists. [details]
