This short note reports on the first European records of Sinelobus stanfordi (Crustacea: Tanaidacea: Tanaidae). The species has been recorded from five different water bodies in the Dutch coastal area and in the docks of the Belgian harbour of Antwerp. S. stanfordi was until now not known to inhabit (North-) European coasts and estuaries. It is thus very likely that its origin is non-indigenous.
