Okuno personal communication (e-mail 13 Nov 1999), it appears that this species was already known from the area : "I carefully read literature on Stenopus, and found a sentence by Dr. Goy (1986: Bishop Mus. Occ. Paper, 26, p. 99). He wrote "....S. tenuirostris has been photographed at Nuku Hiva I (BPBM photo -188, D. M. Devaney)". - AAMP, Marquesas, 2012, Leg 2, coll.
