Badumna longinqua distribution. For the last five months I have been recording the distribution of the non native species, Badumna longinqua. The species originates from Eastern Australia but has been introduced to many countries including the Americas, South Africa, Japan and here in the UK. The earliest record I have found was in Washington in 2019 with the NE of England in my opinion being the first place that B.longinqua established itself outside of garden centres.. Flora is certainly one vector for the introduction of this species in the UK but I have a theory that the huge Nissan factory in Sunderland is the possible vector for the North East of England populations.
