Laticorophium baconi (Shoemaker, 1934) (Crustacea: Amphipoda: Corophiidae: Corophiini): first record in European marine waters

Abstract : Laticorophium baconi (Amphipoda, Corophiidae) was recorded for the first time in European marine waters from buoy fouling communities at the Sant Carles de la Ràpita marina (Alfacs Bay, Eastern Mediterranean Spanish coast). Presence of juveniles, adult males, brooding and ovigerous females were indicative of a well-established population. An entire description of the species, together with a dichotomous key to Corophiini genera characterized by urosome segments fused with uropod 1 ventrally inserted, are provided. This record supports the view that L. baconi may have been overlooked and/or potentially confused with otherCorophiini species such as Apocorophium acutum in previous studies
