[An annotated checklist of the intertidal species of Thalassinidea of the west coast of Baja California, Mexico, and an updated comparative list of their commensals and parasites that live inside the burrows of these crustaceans or on their body, is provided. Four species of burrower shrimps, the mud shrimp, Upogebia macginiteorum (Williams, 1986) [Upogebiidae] and the ghost shrimps, Neotrypaea biffari (Holthuis, 1991), N. californiensis (Dana, 1854), and N. gigas (Dana, 1852) [Callianassidae] were collected during our survey. For each species, the diagnostic features, distribution, and some ecological remarks are recorded, which include: (1) a revised diagnoses for the Neotrypaea species; (2) a range extension for N. californiensis and N. gigas from San Quintin Bay, Baja California, Mexico to El Coyote Estuary, near Point Abreojos, Baja California Sur, México; (3) nine new records of symbiotic associations; and (4) the first record for Mexico of the commensal copepod, Clausidium vancouverense (Haddon, 1912). An illustrated key to the identification of the intertidal species of thalassinideans of the Californian Province is included as well. El presente estudio proporciona una lista faunística comentada de las especies de Talasínidos intermareales de la costa oeste de Baja California, México, y una lista comparativa actualizada de los comensales y parásitos que viven dentro de la madriguera de estos crustáceos o sobre su cuerpo. Cuatro especies de camarones amadrigadores fueron recolectados durante nuestro estudio, el camarón de fango Upogebia macginiteorum (Williams, 1986) [familia Upogebiidae] y los camarones fantasma Neotrypaea biffari (Holthuis, 1991), N. californiensis (Dana, 1854) y N. gigas (Dana, 1852) [familia Callianassidae]. Para cada especie, las características diagnosticas, la distribución y algunas observaciones ecológicas son registradas, lo cual incluye: (1) una diagnosis revisada para las especies de Neotrypaea; (2) la extensión del ámbito geográfico para N. californiensis y N. gigas de la Bahía de San Quintín, Baja California, México hasta el estero El Coyote, cerca de Punta Abreojos, Baja California Sur, México; (3) el registro de nueve nuevas asociaciones simbióticas y (4) el primer registro para México del copépodo comensal Clausidium vancouverense (Haddon, 1912). Se incluye también una clave de identificación de las especies de talasínidos intermareales de la provincia Californiana., An annotated checklist of the intertidal species of Thalassinidea of the west coast of Baja California, Mexico, and an updated comparative list of their commensals and parasites that live inside the burrows of these crustaceans or on their body, is provided.
