Distribution: Bahamas, Caribbean Sea to French Guiana Pérez Farfante & Kensley (1997). VGI (Virgin Gorda), Lesser Antilles, ICA (Saba, St Kitts, Trinidad), IOV (Aruba). 31-180 (to 622 m, cf. Pérez Farfante & Bullis, 1973). WA.
Solenocera acuminata Pérez Farfante & Bullis, 1973: 8, Virgin Gorda, St Kitts (St Christopher), Trinidad, Aruba [R/V Oregon, 1959-1965; R/V Albatross, 1884].
Solenocera aff. acuminita - Guadeloupe (first record?), Karubenthos II 2015, field det. J. Poupin, st. CP4623, 26 June 2015, 15°55.72'N, 61°31.02'W, 217-182 m, MNHN-IU-2013-19102.
Comment: Karubenthos specimen has a few differences with S. acuminata, the most obvious being the aspect of the 6th abdominal tergite dorsal carina that does not match the figure for S. acuminata in Pérez Farfante & Bullis (1973, fig. 4). Solenocera vioscai Burkenroad, 1934 can be also considered although its range extension exclude Lesser Antilles Pérez-Farante & Bullis (1973). The genus Solenocera, with lateral ramus of uropod lacking distolateral spine, must also be checked on that specimen.
