During a sampling program focused on Anthozoa from Ecuador, the caprellid Aciconula acanthosoma was found attached to gorgonians of the genus Leptogorgia collected in Machalilla National Park in November 2012 and June 2013 at depths between 15 and 20 m. The present study represents the first record of A. acanthosoma for Ecuador, increasing its distribution range 3,000 km southward.
