Remarks. Ommatius inflatus ( Scarbrough & Perez-Gelabert, 2003)   was originally reported from Montecristi province. Here we report it in Barahona, San Juan, Santiago, and Peravia provinces. It occurs in low and intermediate elevations on the island. The species is distinguished from congeners by the pale postocular bristles, wing venation ( Fig. 48), mushroom- and pencil-like bristles of sternite 6 ( Fig.54) and characters in the key.
