Introduced species remark Brazilian part of the South Atlantic Ocean (Marine Region) It is also quite probable that this insignificant species was simply overlooked and has occurred in Brazil for a period of time, being misidentified as Pelia rotunda, as this is the only species of the genus described in Brazil (Melo, 1996). The lack of nocturnal dive surveys when P. mutica is most active (Williams, 1984) may also be a reason for its non-identification. [details]

Introduced species vector dispersal Brazilian part of the South Atlantic Ocean (Marine Region) Pathway/vector Other [In the case of Pelia mutica, it may have been introduced by ballast water or possibly as a result of its popularity with aquarists. As it is was a common ornamental species commercially traded within the aquaria industry (Calado et al., 2003). Another explanation to its presence is that of natural dispersion through the counter-flowing North-Brazilian current, which crosses the biogeographic barrier of the Amazon-Orinoco plume. However large dispersions such as this seems improbable for a small cryptobenthic crab, inhabiting a shallow water niche (Williams, 1984).] [details]
