Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorAlien species The Atlantic Rangia or wedge clam Rangia cuneata originates from the Gulf of Mexico. From there this bivalve colonized the Atlantic coast of North-America and Europe. The species was first reported in Europe in August 2005 in the Harbour of Antwerp. Introduction most likely happened through transport of larvae in ballast water of ships. The species mainly live in estuaries, brackish and freshwater. In ports, the Atlantic Rangia can become a pest as it establishes itself in industrial cooling pipes where it can obstruct optimal water flow. [details]
