Abstract
    On 25 May 2014, a dead adult specimen of the marine Isopod Idotea metallica Bosc, 1802 was discovered inside a stranded plastic vented bait jar of North American origin on Lohar Beach, near Waterville, Co. Kerry, South-West Ireland. The status of I. metallica in Irish and North-West European waters is reviewed. Although the current paucity of records would suggest that the species is relatively rare, this may simply be due to a lack of recording effort.
