Alpheus tenuis Kim & Abele, 1988 extends its northern range to Puerto Peñasco, Sonora. Alpheus martini Kim & Abele, 1988 is recorded for the first time outside of Panama (Alcatraz Island, Sonora). Pontonia simplex Holthuis, 1951 is recorded from Teacapan, Sinaloa, in the pen shell Atrina maura (Sowerby, 1835), which constitutes a new host record; additionally, its live colour pattern is described. The range of Pontonia margarita Smith, 1869 is extended along the Mexican coast south to Oaxaca.
