The twinhorn blenny, Coralliozetus cardonae Evermann et Marsh, 1899, is currently known from the Caribbean Sea and adjacent waters, with the exception of the Gulf of Mexico, Florida, Bermuda, and the coast and islands to the north of Venezuela. In this work we report for the first time its occurrence at 19 stations from the Venezuelan coast, Curaçao, and Bonaire Island (Netherlands Antilles), in the Southern Caribbean, based on the examination of 155 specimens. In addition, we provide information on the meristic, distinctive characters, and habitat of this species.
