          Abstract

          This study is an update of list of lobster species from Rocas Atoll Marine Reserve, Brazil. The data were obtained trough visual censuses and photographic registers during expeditions since 1997 until 2014. It represents the first record of Enoplometopus antillensis Lütken, 1865, Palinurellus gundlachi Von Martens, 1878, and Panulirus laevicauda (Latreille, 1817) and reinforces the occurrence of Panulirus argus (Latreille, 1804), Panulirus echinatus Smith, 1869, and Parribacus antarticus (Lund, 1793) from Rocas Atoll. The presence of different lobster species shows us the importance of Rocas Atoll Reserve in relation to number of species and abundance of lobsters.
