In the present account Bathysquilla microps (Manning, ) is recorded for the first time from the West African coast off Morocco and the Western Sahara. In the Atlantic Ocean, this species was only known from the tropical western basin; therefore this is the first time it is recorded from the eastern Atlantic.
