From other sources
Alien species The origin of the Caspian mud shrimp Chelicorophium curvispinum is in rivers that flow into the Caspian and Black Sea. The species is found in fresh to light brackish waters. Specimens of this species life in tubes which they use to attach themselves to rocks or pontoons, on which they form colonies. As the Caspian mud shrimp can also attach these tubes to ship hulls, it is likely that the species spread to West and North Europe via inland shipping. The first Belgian report of the species dates from 1981, in the river Meuse in Huy. As the species has a high tolerance for pollution and grows quickly in European rivers like the Rhine, it can out-compete vulnerable species. [details]

Classification In the Dutch literature the speciessname Corophium curvispinum is always used.

Bousefield & Hoover (1977) split off 12 genera of the genus Corophium; 1 of these genera is Chelicorophium ; mainly in Ponto-Caspic area occuring [details]

Distribution Occurs in fresh and brackish water, notoccuring in the brackish water of the Westerschelde and the Zeeuwse eilanden. [details]
