Guyanella clenchi (Altena, 1968) is newly reported from Abrolhos Bank, northeastern Brazil. The new records extend the distribution of this species to the Southern Atlantic and reinforce the known overlap between the Caribbean and South American marine faunas. Even though it inhabits well-sampled regions, G. clenchi is a poorly known species which is not well represented in collections. The new occurrence of the species in the Southern Atlantic draws attention to the necessity of further improvement in sampling strategies aimed at filling in the distribution gaps of species.
scite is a Brooklyn-based organization that helps researchers better discover and understand research articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by students and researchers from around the world and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
