Note 
From other sources
Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorAlien species Keratella tropica is, like most rotifers, widely distributed. This species is mainly found in tropical and subtropical freshwater, but during summer it also thrives in temperate areas. This rotifer is a free-swimming species that tolerates brackish water. By transport in the ballast water of ships that pass through channels or via birds, the species reached Belgian regions. This species was first reported in Belgium in 1974 at Donkmeer, and at the Ghent Watersportbaan (East Flanders). At the moment, the species has colonized the upper reaches of the Scheldt river as wel as the Sea Scheldt. [details]
