Abstract


Between 1998 and 1999 the expedition INVEMAR-MACROFAUNA 1 investigated the upper continental slope of the Caribbean off Colombia at depths ranging from 200 to 500 m. The collection of echinoids comprised 714 individuals belonging to 7 orders, 10 families, 14 genera and 15 species. Stylocidaris lineata, Trigonocidaris albida, Echinocyamus grandiporus, Palaeobrissus hilgardi and Archaeopneustes hystrix are recorded for the first time in the Colombian Caribbean. Descriptions and identification keys are provided.
