ABSTRACT
Live specimens of the gulf wedge clam (Rangia cuneata) were for the first time found in the Polish part of the Vistula Lagoon in 2011. The species is native to the Gulf of Mexico and the Atlantic coast of North America. First records of its introduction in Europe were reported in 2005 from Belgium and then in 2010 from the Russian part of the Vistula Lagoon.
