The Cedros Archipelago represents a biogeographic transition zone between the temperate and subtropical region, and the species present are representative of these two environments. Based on field surveys, literature, and scientific collection records, the paper established a checklist of 269 species belonging to 191 genera, 97 families, 31 orders, and 4 classes. 105 of these species were observed in the field, 57 were collected from literature reviews, and 218 species were obtained from collections. 14 biogeographic regions are represented: 51% have warm- or cold-temperate affinity while 37% have tropical-subtropical affinity. This study shed light on the wealth of biodiversity in the Cedros Archipelago and provides insight into the evolutionary history of different taxa, especially where a great number of species converge.
