Many papers dealing with nonindigenous species in the Black Sea do not mention the polychaete Polydora limicola Annenkova, a new invader in the Pontic-Azov Basin. In this connection, we will analyze here the taxonomic status of this species and discuss the history of its introduction and distribution in the northwestern Black Sea and related coastal lagoons. It is shown that P. limicola is now one of the most common species of the benthos in the Black Sea, especially in estuarine areas and coastal lagoons. The naturalization of this species resulted in changes in the structure of some bottom biocenoses of this region.
