Cymonomoides cubensis - Guadeloupe (first record for Lesser Antilles), Karubenthos II 2015, field det. J. Poupin/M. Tavares, st. DW4518, 9 June 2015, 16°34.04'N, 61°37.48'W, 441-426 m, MNHN-IU-2013-18869.
Comment: this is a first record for Lesser Antilles. The determination is based on Chace (1940, fig. 5), confirmed by M. Tavares (pers. com.). Cymonomoides fitoi Lemaitre & Bermudez, 2000 is close but distinct by a multifid hepatic spine. Characters of Cymonomoides genus (7 abdominal segments, cornea missing) must be verified on specimens to separate unambiguously this specimen from a Cymonomus sp.
