A population of Saliweckelia (Amphipoda) from Tortuga (Venezuela) is compared with populations from Curaçao and Bonaire (Netherlands Antilles). Considerable variability in a number of characters, within and between the different populations, makes it difficult to ascertain the taxonomic status of the Tortugan specimens. It may not be excluded that all three populations belong to one variable species.
