Lysmata wurdemanni - ?Rodríguez, 1980: 170, Los Roques. - ?Rodríguez, 1986: tab. 2, Los Roques. - ?Hernández et al, 1999: tab. 1, Margarita [Laguna de Las Marites]. - ?Tagliafico et al., 2005: tab. 1, Margarita (Los Frailes). - Not L. wurdemanni (Gibbes, 1850), see comment.
Lysmata ankeri Rhyne & Line, 2006: 179, St John, Margarita, Cubagua. - Hernández-Ávila et al., 2007: tab. 1, Cubagua.
Comment: Rhyne & Line (2006: 182) indicate that Rodríguez records are probably not L. wurdemanni, but L. ankeri intead. In complement, Hernández et al. (1999) and Tagliafico et al. (2005) records from Margarita is also herein considered as most probably L. ankeri because Rhyne & Line (2006, pl. 2) indicate that L. wurdemanni is distributed only along US coastline.
