Hydroides brachyacantha Rioja, 1941 

Ecological interactions

Native status

Non-native (casual)

Notes

Species complex. Reported from Greece by Ulman et al. (2017). In the Mediterranean also known from Israel ( Ben-Eliahu 1991a), Turkey ( Çınar 2006) and Spain ( Ulman et al. 2017). Probably originating from the Mexican Pacific ( Ulman et al. 2017), but the species has been shown to constitute a complex of cryptic and pseudo-cryptic species ( Bastida-Zavala and ten Hove 2003, Sun et al. 2016). The identity of Mediterranean specimens, their introduction status in the Mediterranean and the potential native range cannot be determined without molecular methods.
