Groundwaters (in wells, springs, caves, macroporous interstitia...) of 29 Caribbean islands have been investigated. Only on the four islands off the coast of Venezuela (viz., Aruba, Curaçao, Bonaire, and Margarita) members of the suborder Ingolfiellidea (Crustacea, Amphipoda) have been encountered, altogether six species, of which three are described here for the first time. The zoogeographical implications of this limited range in the West Indies is discussed.
