In recent sampling along the Colombian Caribbean coast, three species of the genus Plesionika (P. gigliolii, P. longicauda, and P. willesi) have been added to the seven reported upon by Campos et al. (in press). P. gigliolii is now recorded for the first time from the West Atlantic. The taxonomic status of P. acanthonotus is discussed. A key to the Atlantic species of Plesionika is provided.
