Distributional notes
This species was introduced accidentally, probably via oysters from Japan, into the Mediterranean (Verlaque et al. 2015: 231), being first found in the Etang de Thau (France) in 1984. Mediterranean populations should be assessed using DNA sequencing. - (5 Nov 2015) - M.D. Guiry
