Periclimenes ?pandionis - Poupin & Corbari, 2016: in press, Guadeloupe (first record?), Karubenthos II 2015, pre-det from photo X. Li [Mail August 2015: very likely belonging to P. pandionis, however, the finger's length is different from this species at least. Needs to check its morphological features], st. CP4558, 15 June 2015, 16°21.98'N, 60°48.72'W, 385-312 m, MNHN-IU-2013-18941; st. CP4624, 26 June 2015, 15°56.23'N, 61°30.67'W, 242-243 m, MNHN-IU-2013-19109; st. CP4595 (indicated 4535 on photos but probably 4595 instead based on MNHN number and date of photo), 22 June 2015, 15°58.65'N, 61°21.95'W, 211-208 m, MNHN-IU-2013-19015; st. DW4626, 26 June 2015, 15°56.84'N, 61°37.11'W, 210-233 m, MNHN-IU-2013-19120.
Comment: X. Li has tentatively suggested P. ?pandionis for Karubenthos specimens but at least with one difference in finger's length. Moreover, specimen MNHN-IU-2013-19120 has a distinct color pattern on the abdomen, with transverse red bands, and belongs perhaps to a second species. Periclimenes pandionis is still nor formaly reported from Lesser Antilles.
