Munidopsis ?serricornis - Guadeloupe (first record for Lesser Antilles), Karubenthos II 2015, field det. J. Poupin, st. DW4510, 7 June 2015, 16°15.1'N, 61°51.3'W, 660-690 m, MNHN-IU-2013-18857.
Comment: Munidopsis serricornis is considered as a species complex (Ahyong, 2014; Macpherson et al., 2016). The photograph determination must therefore be checked. Another potential candidate is Munidopsis acuminata Benedict, 1902 with epipods on chelipeds. Munidopsis tridens (A. Milne-Edwards, 1880) and Munidopsis transtridens Pequegnat & Pequegnat, 1971 are also related but they have tubercles on the gastric region of carapace, not seen on photographs examined.
