Rem.: Incomplete data. Littoral: brackish; in pools not connected with the sea (near Lancing, Sussex)
This species observed in Argentina, could have been introduced by ships.
For Brylinski (2009, p.255) this species resent in the wet docks of Dunkirk harbour (salinity < 31 p.1000) was probably imported in from bakllasts water tankers.
After Heron & Damkaer (1976, Table 2) ratio anal somite/uropod (= caudal rami) 4/7; with metasomal wings in female, not in male.
