AbstractThe decapods Eualus lebourae, Processa modica carolii, Palaemon xiphias, Philocheras bispinosus, and Inachus phalangium are recorded from the coasts of Madeira for the first time. The decapods Hippolyte garciarasoi, Hippolyte varians, Eualus lebourae, Processa parva, Processa modica carolii, Processa robusta, Palaemonella atlantica, Periclimenes wirtzi, Philocheras bispinosus, and Philocheras fasciatus, are recorded from the coasts of the Canary Islands for the first time. Eualus occultus, Processa parva and Processa modica carolii are recorded from the Cape Verde Islands for the first time. Processa parva is also recorded for the Azores for the first time.
For Eualus occultus, Hippolyte garciarasoi, Processa modica carolii, Periclimenes wirtzi and Philocheras fasciatus this is an extension of the known range to the south. For Eualus lebourae, Processa parva and Palaemonella atlantica this is an extension of the known range to the north.
The presence of Palaemon serratus, Eualus occultus, Philocheras trispinosus, Hippolyte leptocerus, and Pilumnus villosissimus at Madeira is confirmed.
