Sth. Georgia Is. (sub-Antarctic)
Decreases in glacial coverage and increases in temperature associated with climate change are predicted to cause an increase in abundance of Trechisibus antarcticus on South Georgia and resulting changes in the abundance and life-history of native invertebrates (Frenot et al. 2005). Brandjes Block & Ernsting (1999) speculate that further expansion will be limited by geographical features such as glaciers or rocky cliffs without any coastal vegetation (easterly towards Hansen Point) or high and unvegetated mountains (north from Leith and southwest from Husdal towards Gulbrandsen Lake). Suitable habitat available over an extended area in the direction of Carlita Bay may facilitate T. antarcticus to colonise the northern coast of Cumberland West Bay in the future.
