Notes 
From regional or thematic species database
Trusted: edited by a thematic editorIntroduced species population trend in Gulf of Mexico (IHO Sea Area) : There is no evidence that this crab reproduces in US waters. [details]

Trusted: edited by a thematic editorIntroduced species remark In Gulf of Mexico (IHO Sea Area) : It is not established in continental US waters, and has no reported impacts. However, researchers in the Gulf are concerned that if it becomes established, it could compete with the Blue Crab (USGS Center for Aquatic Resource Studies 2009). [details]

Trusted: edited by a thematic editorIntroduced species vector dispersal in Gulf of Mexico (IHO Sea Area) : Ships: accidental with ballast water, sea water systems, live wells or other deck basins
Occurrences in the inner Gulf of Mexico probably result through transport in ballast water.  [details]
