Abstract


This paper reports the detection of Pseudothyone belli on submerged hard substrates at three sites in Santa Marta during port surveys conducted in March and October 2010. Owing to its high adaptive and competitive capability, it appears likely that the species has established itself in the Colombian Caribbean.
