On 27 December 2012 for the first time a specimen of Serripes groenlandicus (Mohr, 1786) washed ashore on the Dutch coast, between ‘s-Gravenzande and Hoek van Holland. Although one valve had almost completely disappeared the specimen represents a doublet and hence is a fresh shell. Given the living area of Serripes groenlandicus, i.e. from the very North of Europe to Alaska, transport of the specimen by for example a trawler seems more likely than natural dispersal.
