Abstract
    In sediment samples collected in the Oosterschelde, a marine embayment in the southwest of The Netherlands (southern North Sea), nine specimens of a non-native myodocopid ostracod were found. The ostracods were identifed as the North American species Eusarsiella zostericola (Cushman, 1906), previously introduced to southeastern England, probably with imported American oysters.
