Notes 
From other sources
Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorAlien 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]
