Abstract
    The present paper reports the occurrence of the Chinese mitten crab, Eriocheir sinensis H. Milne Edwards, 1854, in Portugal and thus extends its known southerly distribution for Europe. Available Portuguese data are presented and discussed including a possible new size record for the northeastern Atlantic region.
