Bathymenes ? - Guadeloupe (first record?), Karubenthos 2 2015, pre-det. X. Li from photo [Mail August, 2015: should be a Bathymenes sp. (covered the Periclimenes alcocki group). Because it looks like several species of the genus with its landscopic morphology and colouration pattern, I am not sure which one it belonging, maybe a new species], st.

Comment: Bathymenes Kou, Li & Bruce, 2015, described in Chinese Journal of Oceanology and Limnology, includes 15 Indo-West Pacific and Eastern Pacific species, distributed between 187-824 m. This would be the first Atlantic record for this group, if genus is confirmed.
