SOLIS-MARIN, Francisco Alonso et al. First record and geographic distribution of Ophiambix devaneyi (Echinodermata: Ophiuroidea) in the Gulf of Mexico. Rev. Mex. Biodiv. [online]. 2014, vol.85, n.3, pp.961-964. ISSN 2007-8706.

The geographic distribution of Ophiambix devaneyi Paterson, 1985 is extended to a new locality within the Gulf of Mexico. This species is an extremely rare ophiuroid, not only because of its morphology, which makes it unique, but also because there are only 2 other specimens that have been collected around the world. New habitat information of the species is provided.

Keywords : new record.
