Distributional notes
This species was introduced accidentally, probably via oysters from Japan and on multiple occasions, into the Mediterranean (Verlaque et al. 2015: 209), being first found in the Etang de Berre (France) in 1969-71. It is now widely distributed in the Mediterranean. - (5 Nov 2015) - M.D. Guiry
