ResumenWe report the first occurrence in Europe and the Mediterranean Sea of a tropical Atlantic hermit crab, Pagurus mbizi (Forest, 1955), based on the capture of twenty specimens (all sizes and ovigerous females) collected along the northern shores of the Alboran Sea that prove the existence of a well-established population of this species and the importance of this geographic area as a transitional and settlement zone for Atlantic species, making the Alboran Sea one of the richest marine biodiversity areas in the Mediterranean Sea. Some morphological comparative data, with the related hermit crab Pagurus pubescentulus, are given. In addition, data on the habitat and geographical distribution of the species, as well as the probable pathways of introduction, are commented
