Decapoda - Caridea - Rhynchocinetidae - Cinetorhynchus

Cinetorhynchus rigens (Gordon, 1936)

World Distribution
Chace (1972: 17) - Bermudas, Florida Keys, Barbuda and Madeira; littoral and sublittoral. Los Roques.
See also Wirtz (2021, draft notes and photos) - Lesser Antilles records of C. rigens are probably of C. sp. nov. Duris et al. (in prep.) instead. C. rigens is in EA, Ascension and St. Helena, and Guarapari/Brazil. It probably does not occur in Lesser Antilles.

Environnement : Marine - Substrat/Association : Hard bottom (rock and rubbles)

Vertical range : Shallow-waters (0-100 m) - Min-Max observed: 1-8 m

Lesser Antilles data
Distribution: VGI, Lesser Antilles, ICA (Guadeloupe, Martinique, Barbuda), IOV (Los Roques, Bonaire). 1-8 m. ATL.

Cinetorhynchus rigens - DORIS, 2017: WebPages, Guadeloupe, Bonaire
Cintetorhynchus rigens - Martinique, groupe BIOSPHERES, November 2015, coll. R. Ferry, Y. Buske., det. J. Poupin (see comment).
Comment: Color pattern of Martinique specimen (groupe BIOSPHERES) matches the pattern sometimes attributed to C. manningi in regional field guides. However, there are 3 arthrobranchs (on P1/P2/P3) on specimen examined while only one is present (on P1) in C. manningi.

Comment(s) on data
Comment in 2021 - According to Wirtz (2021, draft notes and photos) and Duris et al. in prepration, records in this base should be corrected into C. sp. nov. for C. manningi (Poupin, 2018, 104, fig. 85A) and C. rigens (Poupin, 2018, 104, fig. 85B) and into C. manningi for C. sp. (Poupin, 2018, 104, fig. 85C)
