Heterodiomus   sp.

Examined material: Not available.

Original reference: Desender & Baert (1996): “ Heterodiomus   spec. 1, Easter Island, [Nr.16], 200m, 30 November–20 December 1996, pampa with 50% of vegetation cover of grasses and small shrubs, PF [Pitfall trapping]”.

Comments: the only female specimen was determined by R.D. Gordon, who established that it was probably a non-described species introduced from the mainland ( Desender & Baert 1996). Species of this genus are distributed in Chile, Argentina, Brazil and Uruguay. There is no image of this species.
