          Abstract

          Pigrogromitus timsanus Calman, 1927 is a species of pycnogonid that has a broad world distribution and belongs to a monotypic genus. Although this species was recorded for the first time in the Southern Atlantic from the port of Natal, state of Rio Grande do Norte, this record appeared in the grey literature, has gone unnoticed, and to our knowledge, the specimens are not available for study. Based on materials in the Paulo Young Invertebrate Collection at Universidade Federal da Paraíba, we provide further proof of the presence of P. timsanus in the Southern Atlantic. We also provide an updated account on the worldwide distribution of this species.
