Comment: Anker & Toth (2008: 4, Distribution of Synalpheus paraneptunus) - With certainty known only from the type locality in Colombia; all other records of S. paraneptunus, including the paratypes from Jamaica (Coutière 1909), and the subsequent records from the Caribbean, Florida and Gulf of Mexico (Schmitt 1935; Chace 1972; Dardeau 1984; Ríos & Duffy 2007) most probably refer to other species or involve multiple species (including perhaps S. paraneptunus), and therefore require confirmation.
