Resumen

Knowledge about ophiuroids from Chiapas, Mexico, is still limited; only Diopederma daninana was previously recorded in the state. In order to contribute to the knowledge of their diversity in the region, ophiuroids were collected in four localities of Puerto Chiapas, in different substrata and at different depths. Three species were identified: Ophiothrix (Ophiothrix) spiculata, Ophiactis savignyi, and Ophiactis simplex. O. simplex was the most abundant and well distributed. With these additions, we updated the checklist of ophiuroids from Chiapas to five species.
