Abstract

First record of Monocorophium uenoi (Stephenson, 1932) (Crustacea: Amphipoda: Corophiidae) in the Bay of Biscay, French Atlantic coast.

Abstract

The non-indigenous amphipod Monocorophium uenoi was recorded for the first time on the French Atlantic coast. This species has been collected in Arcachon Bay and Bidasoa Estuary as early as 2007, probably introduced with non-native oysters. A summary on its morphological characters and its current distribution is done, and an updated identification key to Monocorophium species for European waters is provided.
