Abstract


The family Crangonidae comprises 22 genera and 219 species. Six species are recorded in the Southwestern Atlantic. In this paper, two species of this family, Pontophilus brevirostris Smith, 1881 and Sabinea hystrix (A. Milne-Edwards, 1881) are recorded for the first time to southwestern Atlantic Ocean. Additionally, we record the occurrence of Parapontocaris caribbaea (Boone, 1927), Parapontophilus gracilis (Smith, 1882) and Philocheras gorei (Dardeau, 1980) to the Northeast of Brazil. Through this paper, we raised the number of Cragonidae species to eight from recorded from southwestern Atlantic (Brazilian deep waters).
