ABSTRACT During a biological investigation of Cay Sal Bank in 1978-82 conducted on the R/V Bellows, an important collection of decapods was obtained in depths ranging from 1 to 498 m. The material included the heretofore figured but characterized caridean Stylodactylus rectirostris, and the poorly known brachyurans Dissodactylus juvenilis and Micropanope pusilla. First western Atlantic records are reported for the carideans Ligur ensiferus and Plesionika williamsi,and minor range extensions for six other species. Zoogeographic affinities of the more than 113 species collected are greatest with the fauna of the Gulf of Mexico. Distributional data indicate that the Florida Current is not a significant obstacle for decapod crustaceans but more probably serves as vehicle for the transport of larval stages across the Straits of Florida. Fifty percent of the penaeoids and carideans from the slope of the bank occur also in the eastern Atlantic.
