Three species are reported for the southwestern pycnogonids Santa Marta in the Colombian Caribbean. Nymphon surinamense, Anoplodactylus insignis and Pallenopsis schmitti were collected in trawls over soft bottoms between 14 and 60 m deep. This report extends the geographical distribution of N. Surinamese and A. insignis in the Caribbean and highlights the abundance of P. schmitti in the area. The distribution and systematics of the species are briefly discussed and presented illustrations for each.
