Abstract:Plankton collections from deep waters in the Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico contain noteworthy bathypelagic chaetognaths. A new genus, Bathybelos, and its type-species, Bathybelos typhlops, are described. The occurrence of deeply serrated hooks in young specimens of Eukrohnia bathyantarctica David, E. bathypelagica Alvariño, and E. proboscidea Furnestin & Ducret is reported. Eukrohnia bathypelagica is recorded for the first time from the Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean Sea and E. proboscidea, from the Caribbean.Spadella hummelincki Alvariño, 1970, is put in synonymy to Spadella pulchella Owre, 1963. The validity of Krohnitta mutabbii Alvariño, 1969, is discussed.
