Comment: This is a first record for Lesser Antilles. Photos were determined using Pequegnat (1970: 90), with length and armament of the rostrum. It was relatively abundant in trawl captures during Karubenthos II while it was not captured in the same place by using traps and/or dredges with R/V Polka during previous explorations around Guadeloupe and/or Martinique (cf. Paulmier, 1993; Paulmier & Gervain, 1994; Poupin, 1994).
