Introduced species remark in United States (Nation) : In Guam, M. oceanicus has a localised distribution on artificial substrata, concrete seawalls and may be locally common on hard substrates in the most protected landward parts of Apra Harbour [details]

Introduced species remark in United States (Hawai) part of the North Pacific Ocean (Marine Region) : New record for Hawai'i of probably a recently established invasive species. Most common in protected zones on artificial and introduced mangrove substrates. [details]
