In the present article three benthic decapods, Aristeus varidens Holthuis, 1952 (Aristeidae), Gastroptychus formosus (Filhol, ) (Chirostylidae) and Plesionika longicauda (Rathbun, 1901) (Pandalidae), are recorded for the first time from the Cape Verde Islands. This is the southernmost record of G. formosus, as well as the northernmost of P. longicauda ever recorded from the eastern Atlantic. Preliminary data on batch fecundity and egg size of the pandalid shrimp are provided. Studied specimens were caught in the frame of a scientific trapping survey.
