Decamastus nudus, described from Madagascar, was reported by Hernández-Alcánatra and Solís-Weiss (1993, 1998, 1999) for the Gulf of California, but these specimens differ from the original description of Thomassin (1970), in having prostomium with palpode, dark brown eyespots, epithelium smooth on first segments, and hooded hooks with a main fang with four rows of small teeth. Decamastus nudus lacks a palpode, has orange pigment spots, the first 3–4 segments are slightly tessellated, and hooded hooks with a main fang and 2–3 rows of small teeth. We consider that these specimens belong to a different species not previously described. For that the record of Decamastus nudus from Gulf of California is erroneous.
