Micropanope pugilator - A. Milne-Edwards, 1880a: 14, St Croix, Grenada, Barbados [in part, at least one specimen from St Croix, R/V Blake, st. 132, 115 brasses is Micropanope lobifrons instead, cf. Rathbun, 1930: 428; Grenada, Barbados, R/V Blake, st. 247, 170 brasses; st. 278, 69 brasses]. - A. Milne-Edwards & Bouvier, 1923: 326, St Croix, Grenada, Barbados [R/V Blake, st. 132, Santa Cruz, 115 brasses; st. 247, Grenade, 170 brasses; st. 278, Barbades, 69 brasses; … de ces divers matériaux, nous n'avons plus sous les yeux qu'un femelle ovigère du N°278, étiquetée par erreur Micropanope pugilator, alors qu'elle présente tous les caractères du M. lobifrons] - Micropanope pugilator A. Milne-Edwards, 1880(1873-1881) is accepted as M. sculptipes Stimpson, 1871 in WoRMS (2016).
