Taxonomic Group: Crustaceans-Amphipods


Incisocalliope derzhavini is a small estuarine and marine amphipod, usually associated with intertidal and subtidal fouling invertebrates. It is native to the Northwest Pacific, where it is known from southern Russia, Japan and Korea. Introduced populations are present along the West coast of North America in the Northeast Pacific, where it spans from Puget Sound, Washington to San Diego Bay, California. Ballast water and hull fouling are considered the most likely vectors for the introduction of this amphipod.
