          Abstract

          Contributions to the knowledge of the Pycnogonida fauna along the Brazilian coast are scarce. There are only 60 records for the coast of Brazil, and reports of this fauna are notably discontinuous. This is the first record of Pentapycnon geayi Bouvier, 1911 (Pycnogonida: Pycnogonidae) in the state of Ceará. This study adds a new bathymetric record and fills a gap in the distribution of P. geayi along the Brazilian coast. This report also provides important new data for Ceará because the diversity of Pycnogonida in this state is practically unknown.
