Abstract: New records of the alien species, Penaeus aztecus Ives, 1891, commonly known as the Northern brown shrimp, are reported from the Mediterranean Sea: first records from waters of Albania and Sicilian Ionian Sea, and new records from the southern coast of Sicily (from Mazara del Vallo to Pozzallo). The species appears well established in the southern coast of Sicily, in which it was first recorded (four specimens) in 2015. First records from Albania and Sicilian Ionian Sea suggest a range expansion of the species in the basin.
