Sicyonia burkenroadi - Pérez Farfante & Kensley, 1997: 155, 'West Indies, Caribbean coast of central America [?IOV].
Sicyonia burkenroadi - Guadeloupe (first record for Lesser Antilles), Karubenthos II 2015, field det. J. Poupin, st. DW4555, 15 June 2015, 16°23.53'N, 60°49.67'W, 258-100 m, MNHN-IU-2013-18937; st. DW4597, 22 June 2015, 15°55.47'N, 61°23.48'W, 210-208 m, MNHN-IU-2013-19027; st. DW4613, 25 June 2015, 16°24.16'N, 60°50.1'W, 210-240 m, MNHN-IU-2013-19066; st. CP4623, 26 June 2015, 15°55.72'N, 61°31.02'W, 217-182 m, MNHN-IU-2013-19104.
Comment: Karubenthos 2015 specimens have the characteristic red/white color patch on lateral side of carapace (see Takeda, 1983: 48). This color mark is reduced on specimen MNHN-IU-2013-19104 but its general appearance is similar to the specimen of S. burkenroadi illustrated in Williams (1984: 46, fig. 27). The key to the western Atlantic species of Sicyonia by Pérez Farfante (1980) can be used to check this photo determination.
