    Definitions

From editor or global species database
Introduced species remark The provenance or origin of the species is ‘uncertain’ / ‘unknown’
Maeotias inexpectata Ostroumoff, 1896, is now regarded as a synonym of M. marginata. Maeotias inexpectata was originally described from the Black Sea, all other occurrences are considered introductions. Väinölä & Oulasvirta (2001) (see page 402) acknowledge that the species was first found in Holland (in 1762), and only a century later in the Black Sea.  [details]

From regional or thematic species database
Introduced species remark United States part of the North Pacific Ocean (Marine Region) Overall, abundance and distribution of medusae of these three hydrozoans in Suisun Marsh depended on seasonal stability of environmental conditions that favored blooms. While harmful effects have yet to be demonstrated, they could become more of a problem as both sea level and water temperatures rise, especially given the combined range of environmental conditions at which the three species occur. [details]

Introduced species vector dispersal in North Atlantic Ocean (IHO Sea Area) : Potential for spread via ballast water. [details]

Introduced species vector dispersal in French part of the Bay of Biscay (Marine Region) : Shipping [details]

Introduced species vector dispersal in France (Nation) : May have entered via shipping or naturally from Estonian waters. [details]

Introduced species vector dispersal Finnish part of the Baltic Sea (Marine Region) Ships: accidental with ballast water, sea water systems, live wells or other deck basins [details]
