[Panulirus argus is herein reported from the Cape Verde Islands for the first time. In May 2002 and February 2005, local lobster fishermen captured two specimens at depths of 20-40 m. Other occurrences of this species during the last 15-20 years suggest that a permanent population of P. argus is established in the Cape Verde Archipelago. Two invasion theories (ship ballast mediation and dispersal during the larval phase) and two possible source populations (Brazil and the Caribbean) are proposed, and discussed in view of oceanic currents.

A presença de Panulirus argus nas ilhas de Cabo Verde é referida pela primeira vez. Em Maio de 2002 e Fevereiro de 2005, dois exemplares foram capturados por pescadores locais, a profundidades de 20-40 metros. A ocorrência desta espécie nos últimos 15 a 20 anos sugere a existência de uma população permanente de P. argus no Arquipélago de Cabo Verde. São propostas duas teorias para explicar a ocorrência desta população (transporte de larvas na água de lastro dos navios e por correntes oceânicas), e sugeridas duas possíveis populações de origem (Brasil e Caraíbas)., Panulirus argus is herein reported from the Cape Verde Islands for the first time.
