Some Brachionidae indicative of polluted water are normally found in brackish but unpolluted waters in The Netherlands. The circumtropical K. tropica is now regularly recorded in the Hollands Diep, which is slightly thermally polluted, but it also seems to occur, at times, in waters that receive no heated water effluents.
