OPHIOTHRIX SYNOECINA (ECHINODERMATA: OPHIUROIDEA: OPHIOTRICHIDAE): ENDEMIC AND VULNERABLE SPECIES FROM THE COLOMBIAN CARIBBEAN

Mario Monroy López, Oscar D. Solano

Abstract


The presence of Ophiothrix synoecina Schoppe in the Guajira area (Cabo de la Vela), and the contribution of new information about its distribution and density, allowed the reevaluation of the category proposed on the Marine Invertebrates Red List, because of its small and fragmentary area of nine localities through the Colombian Caribbean rocky-shore.

Keywords


Ophiothrix synoecina; Marine Invertebrates Red List; Colombia; Vulnerable species; Rocky shore.
