Examination of invertebrate vouchers collected during bottom trawl surveys conducted by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s National Marine Fisheries Service revealed northern range extensions of three decapod species. Two of these species are caridean shrimps (Lebbeus washingtonianus (M. J. Rathbun, 1902) (Hippolytidae) and Systellaspis braueri paucispinosa Crosnier, 1987 (Oplophoridae)) and represent the first records in Alaska. The lithodid crab Neolithodes diomedeae (J. E. Benedict, 1895) was found off California, the first record in U.S. waters, extending its known range by some 2000 km. Biological notes for these three species are provided and morphometric measurements are listed for Neolithodes diomedeae.
