Abstract: Brachidontes striatulus (Hanley) is reported for the first time from Singapore. This highly variable species from India was found either in monospecific byssus aggregates or nestled amongst the byssal mats of another invasive species, Mytilopsis sallei, in tidal monsoon drains. Densities of up to 75 individuals. 100cm-2 were recorded in salinities ranging between 12 and 20%o. Size-frequency relationships of live and dead shells suggested that the mussel has established itself recently and is likely to spread. © National University of Singapore.
