Hi, I identified this species as a Lonchaeidae. So far, there are no records of any species in this family from French Polynesia. Can anyone help me with subfamily/ genus or help pointing me in a direction where I might find this species?

Thanks for any input and help
Best
Sebastian

Hello Sebastian

I have done work on Pacific Island Lonchaeidae - but I dont recognise this one - I am still not 100% sure its a lonchaeid. Some lateral or head photos would be useful

Sebastian - thanks - that's better. I can see now its a Lamprolonchaea species which is not surprising given the location. Your specimen is a female - only males are identifiable - so if you find one I would be happy to have a look at it
best wishes .......... Iain

Iain, thanks for the ID help! I know that Lamprolonchaea metatarsata has been reported from the Cook Islands, but a thorough examination of this specimen might nevertheless be valuable. Unfortunately, I only have collected this one female so far. If your offer to help still stands later, I'd get back to you once I find a male in one of my traps.

Best
