Hydroides dianthus (Verrill, 1873) 

Notes

Species complex. Hydroides dianthus  was originally described from Connecticut and long believed to be non-native in the Mediterranean ( Zibrowius 1973b, Zenetos et al. 2017). A recent study by Sun et al. (2017) shows, however, that Hydroides dianthus  could originate from the Mediterranean, as the species shows the highest genetic diversity in the Mediterranean (nine out of ten haplotypes present, as opposed to only two haplotypes in the USA). The authors recovered also a putative cryptic species, Hydroides cf. dianthus  , probably originating from the Gulf of Mexico and apparently recently introduced to the Black Sea.
