Notes

May be underreported in Greece, as specimens identified as Hydroides norvegica  Gunnerus, 1768 from harbour and biofouling environments probably belong to Hydroides elegans  ( Zibrowius 1971, Arvanitidis 1994, ten Hove and Kupriyanova 2009). The species is considered introduced to the Mediterranean, although its centre of origin is still unknown ( ten Hove 2003).
