Fenestrulina delicia is reported from Europe. The first record may be in 2002 (De Kluijver, 2006) as F. malusii from Wemeldinge in the Eastern Scheldt (The Netherlands). Unfortunately the material could not be traced. In 2005 and 2006 few colonies were collected by Marco Faasse on mussel shells at Goesse Sas in the Eastern Scheldt while scuba diving. In 2007 a colonie was collected at Granville (Normandie, France) on an oystershell and in May 2008 lots of colonies were collected at Le-Val-André (Brittany, France) on the inner side of several bivalves. As all European places are known for their aquaculture, import of shellfish is the most likely vector of introduction. Fenestrulina malusii is an autochtone species in Europe: common in France, rare in Belgium and only known with certainty from beached material in the Netherlands if the record of De Kluijver is not F. malusi but F. delici.
