Abstract
    The invasive Ponto-Caspian mysid crustacean Hemimysis anomala has been recorded for the first time in the UK in November 2004, and in 2005 at a number of sites in the English Midlands. It occurs in both lentic and lotic environments, including the margins of the relatively fast-flowing River Trent, and large swarms have been observed in one lake. It is not known how the mysid reached the English Midlands, although one site hosts international rowing events.
