          Abstract

          The Pacific coast of Colombia has been poorly explored, and its fauna is one of the least known in the tropical eastern Pacific. Although knowledge of the decapod fauna from this coast has recently increased, the information is scattered in numerous sources. A review of the literature showed that 378 decapods have been reported from this coast, including the islands of Gorgona and Malpelo. The numbers of species are distributed as follows: Dendrobranchiata, 18; Caridea,79; Thalassinidea, 13; Palinura, 6; Anomura, 61 ; and Brachyura, 201. Twenty-seven species are known exclusively from the Colombian coast, three of which are endemic to the islands of Malpelo or Gorgona. A list of nominal species is presented, including information on distribution, important references, and synonyms under which the taxa have been reported for this coast. A summary of the history of explorations of the Pacific coast of Colombia as it relates to decapods, is presented. Zoogeographie affinities are briefly discussed for the marine species based on published distributions. Affinities are greatest with the Gulf of California (51.8%), followed by the Galapagos (28.6%), the Indo-Pacific (8.8%), and the Caribbean- Atlantic (7.7%).

          Translated abstract

          La costa del Pacífico colombiano ha sido poco explorada, siendo su fauna una de las mas desconocidas del Pacífico tropical americano. Aunque el conocimiento de los decápodos de esta costa ha aumentado recientemente, la información sobre las especies se halla dispersa en numerosas fuentes. Un examen de estas fuentes reveló que en esta costa, incluyendo las Islas de Malpelo y Gorgona, se han registrado 378 especies pertenecientes a 50 familias, y repartidas asi: Dendrobranchiata, 18; Caridea, 79; Thalassinidea, 13; Palinura, 6; Anomura, 61; y Brachyura, 201. Veintisiete especies se conocen únicamente de la costa colombiana, de las cuales tres son endémicas en las Islas de Malpelo o Gorgona. Se presenta la lista de los decápodos conocidos de esta costa, con información sobre su distribución geográfica y batimétrica, referencias importantes, y sinónimos bajo los cuales han sido registrados para Colombia. Se hace un resumen histórico de las exploraciones en el Pacífico colombiano en referencia a los decápodos, y se incluye una discusión preliminar sobre las afinidades zoogeográficas de las especies marinas. Las afinidades son mayores con las regiones del Golfo de California y Baja California (51.8%), las Islas Galápagos (28.6%), el Indo-Pacífico (8.8%), y el Caribe-Atlántico (7.7%).
