Hydroides norvegica Gunnerus, 1768 

Notes

Zibrowius (1971) shows that the non-native species Hydroides elegans  (Haswell, 1883) has replaced Hydroides norvegica  in harbour fouling communities of the Mediterranean and that Hydroides norvegica  is restricted to deeper waters. ten Hove and Kupriyanova (2009) suggest that all (sub)tropical records of Hydroides norvegica  should be attributed to Hydroides elegans  . In Greece, Hydroides norvegica  has been reported both from harbour and shallow coastal communities as well as from deep waters below 500 m (e.g. Tselepides 1992). Its presence in the port of Heraklion and other Mediterranean ports has been recently confirmed ( Ulman et al. 2017).
