Trachycaris rugosus - Schmitt, 1924b: 68, Curaçao [coll. C.J. van der Horst, 1920] - Not Trachycaris rugosa (Spence Bate, 1888) but Trachycaris restricta (A.Milne-Edwards, 1878), cf. Hothuis (1949: 239)
Trachycaris restrictus - Holthuis, 1949: 239, Curaçao. - Rodríguez, 1980: 172, Curaçao.
Trachycaris restricta - Criales, 1992: 569, ?Curaçao [Curaçao doubtful: it is best to separate the east Atlantic species, T. restricta, from the west Atlantic species, T. rugosa … until it is possible to compare greater number of specimens].
Comment: Criales (1992) conclusion that T. restricta is limited to EA are no more supported because several occurrences of T. restricata are now documented in WA, Brazil (see Sousa et al., 2014). Holthuis (1949) observation with occurrence at Curaçao therefore possible.

Comment(s) on data
Check this entry, not in Felder et al. (2009), only Trachycaris rugosa (Bate, 1888) from Gulf of Mexico.
