Alien species The natural distribution area of the false angelwing Petricolaria pholadiformis was limited to the east coast of North America, but was brought to Europe (England) around 1890 together with the transport of the eastern oyster Crassostrea virginica. The planktonic larvae of the false angelwing could subsequently reach the rest of Europe by hitch hiking on the sea currents. The species was first observed in Belgian waters at Nieuwpoort in 1899. In Today, the false angelwing can mainly be found along the east part of Belgian's coast. This bivalve drills passageways in peat blocks, wood, hard clay and limestone. Living individuals are often found in washed ashore peat blocks. Empty shells are frequently found on Belgian beaches.  [details]
