  1. For artificial substrates records, we used settling plates deployed in the marina of Calheta (Ca); Funchal (FX); Quinta do Lorde (QL); Porto Santo (PS) from 2007; 2010; 2012, 2013 to 2015, including dry dock inspections (DDI). We complemented this study with literature surveys on previous records. All species detected were assigned to one of three categories: native (N), non-indigenous species (NIS) or cryptogenic (C). The presence of Bugulidae species is shown by “”; not present by “”; and first occurring record by “*” and respective references
