A small shallow-water collection of 16 pycnogonid species in six genera from the western Caribbean coast of Middle America is presented and discussed. Three new species, representing predominantly shallow-water genera, are described, illustrated, and compared with their congeners from this relatively well collected area. The new species are Ammothella panamensis, Anoplodactylus ampullaceus and Anoplodactylus dissitus. Distributions are given for the other 13 species along with applicable remarks, and a new key is given to the genus Ammothella.
