Seven species of Pycnogonida are recorded from the islands of Curaçao and Bonaire, living in coral debris (sand, rubble), often quite deep (40—80 cm) in the sediment. Two species (both new) occur in larger numbers and are considered truly interstitial. The others possibly are only accidental in this kind of habitat.
