Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorIntroduced species remark This species has been considered a invasive species, however, there is little evidence of this assumption. It might well be that is simply a widespread species that has been confounded with T. nutricula from which it is not distinguishable in its polyp phase (and with which it had been synonymized). [details]
