During "Huinay Fiordos"-expeditions between 2005 and 2014 benthic Decapoda (Crustacea: Malacostraca) were collected down to 40 m depth using minimal invasive sampling methods. The 889 specimens were attributed to 54 species. The infraorder Brachyura was the most speciose with 27 species, followed by Anomura with 18 species, Caridea with 8 species and Dendrobranchiata with one species. Taxonomic examination was complemented by in-situ photo documentation and close-up pictures with extended depth of field taken from sampled individuals showing the species-specific features. Faunistic data was evaluated with location maps and sample localities are discussed according to existing literature, often resulting in the extension of known distribution ranges of various species. Pinnixa brevipollex Rathbun, 1898 is recorded for the first time in the South-East Pacific.
