Abstract A revision of clam shrimps of the family Limnadiidae from Venezuela resulted in eight species, of which seven belong to the genus Eulimnadia and one to Metalimnadia. Eulimnadia texana, previously reported from North America and Brazil, now has a less discontinuous distribution as does E. cylindrova, previously reported from North America and the Galapagos Islands. Collections of specimens of E. geayi and Metalimnadia serratura were made. The species E. colombiensis and E. magdalenensis, once believed to be endemic to Colombia, now have a larger distribution that includes the Venezuelan lowlands. Finally, one new limnadiid species, Eulimnadia follisimilis, is described.
