Abstract

The first record of the red swamp crayfish in Sicily dates back to 2003 and, since then, the speciesseemed to be confined to a few localities in western Sicily. A small “citizen science” project carried outfrom November 2016 onwards led to the creation of the “Sicilian Procambarus working group”(SPwg), which aims at monitoring the distribution and impact of the species in Sicily. To date, theSPwg found the red swamp crayfish in five new sites on the island, thus doubling the number of localsites of occurrence. The new Procambarus clarkii sites lie in different river basins, some of themlocated several hundred kilometres from the invaded areas known to date, suggesting the existence ofmultiple independent releases of the species in the wild. The need of better informing the localpopulation on the risks exerted by invasive species on biological diversity, and of carefully monitoringthe impact of P. clarkii on the Sicilian inland water biota is briefly stressed
