Ecological interactions

Native status

Non-native (established)


Reported from Greece by Simboura et al. (2010), found several times afterwards (HCMR, unpublished data). In the Mediterranean also known from Turkey ( Çınar et al. 2014) and the Adriatic Sea ( Munari et al. 2017). Chambers et al. (2011) doubt the validity of the Mediterranean records and the presence of the species in the Mediterranean (mainly on the basis of its Pacific distribution) but Le Garrec et al. (2016) present evidence of a wide distribution of the species in the Bay of Biscay, indicating that Chaetozone corona  is an established alien species along the coasts of Europe and was probably introduced via shipping from its native distribution.
