Note(s): While examining a collection of crustaceans from the southeastern and central eastern Florida coast, collected by R/V "George M. Bowers", Southeastern Regional Fisheries Center, NOAA, we were fortunate to discover four additional specimens of Zygopa michaelis Holthuis, I960. These specimens, obtained from relatively shallow water off Miami, Florida, plus the Palm Beach specimen noted above, are the first to be recorded from the continental United States, and constitute a range extension northward from Curacao in the southern Caribbean Sea of approximately 2100 km.
