EASTER ISLAND - Pseudosquilla oxyrhyncha Borradaile - Gravier, 1936: 254 (Ile de Pâques ... "Deux exemplaires ont été récoltés : l'un mâle, de 47 mm, environ de longueur, l'autre femelle, de 31 mm ..."). - Raoulserenea oxyrhyncha - Manning, 1995: 116 (new genus). - Remark: e-mail AHYONG December 17, 2003: 'I was recently been able to check Gravier's (1936) Raoulserenea oxyrhyncha (as Pseudosquilla oxyrhyncha) from Easter Island in the MNHN. Of the 2 original specimens, only one seems to be extant (47 mm male) - it is referable to Pseudosquillisma oculata. Raoulserenea oxyrhyncha can probably now be excluded from the known fauna of EI.
