Abstract
    The Pacific brown-banded sea-spider Ammothea hilgendorfi has been introduced to Venice (Mediterranean Sea: 1979–1981) and south England (NE-Atlantic: 1978). From the Channel Coast of south England it has spread to the southern North Sea Coast (Blackwater Estuary, Essex). The present paper reports further dispersal across the North Sea to the Atlantic coast of the European continent.
