Lohmannella masatierrae Newell, 1984  

Diagnosis. Two corneae present. Glp-1 anterior to Ds-1. Ds-2 on membranous cuticle. Ds-3 on membranous cuticle. One or possibly 2 dorsal setae on PE. Male with 63 Pgs and 8 Sgs.; Tb I with 6 heavy ventral setae; Ta III–IV with 4-3 dorsal setae, 1 or 2 ventral setae. Fossary setae filimorm. Lc I with unidentate accessory process. Idiosoma   length 344, width 254 in male.

Remarks. This species is similar to L. setosa   , but different from the latter by the presence of 2 corneae, shortlength of dorsal setae, and fewer number (1 or 2) of ventral setae on Ta III. Newell (1984) mentioned that this species had 2 distinct corneae. However, the corneae are not found in his original drawing (fig. 729). Male is known.

Habitat. Littoral zone: Non-coralline branched red algae.

Distribution. South Pacific Ocean: Robinson Crusoe Is., Puerto Inglés (Juan Fernández) [ Chile].
