A checklist of decapod crustaceans from the Cape Verde archipelago was recently published, including a biogeographic assessment and a comparison with the decapodal biota of the Canary Islands (González, 2018). In addition, eight other decapod species have recently been reported from the region: Lysmata seticaudata (Risso, 1816) (Lysmatidae), Brachycarpus biunguiculatus (Lucas, 1846) (Palaemonidae) and Thor amboinensis (DeMan, 1888) (Thoridae) (Wirtz, 2019), Gnathophyllum americanum Guérin-Méneville, 1855 (Palaemonidae) (Neves, 2020a), and Typton anaramosae Neves, 2020 (Palaemonidae) (Neves, 2020b), within the carideans; Stenopus spinosus Risso, 1827 (Stenopodidae) (Wirtz, 2019), within the stenopodideans; and Parribacus antarcticus (Lund, 1793) (Scyllaridae) (Freitas & Wirtz, 2019), within the achelates. Also, larval stages (phyllosoma phase) of Scyllarus subarctus Crosnier, 1970 (Scyllaridae) have been reported from the area (Genis-Armero et al., 2017).
