New records for the mantis shrimp Lysiosquilla manningi Boyko, 2000, are presented for western Mexico. They include the shallowest sampling depth on record (1.5 m) and the largest male specimen known to date (175 mm total length). The shallowest record of L. manningi came from a coastal lagoon in Mazatlán, Mexico, where Cloridopsis dubia (H. Milne Edwards, 1837) has been collected on several occasions in similar depths. This finding is intriguing considering that the type material of L. desaussurei (Stimpson, 1857) proved to be a specimen of C. dubia originally from the same locality.
