Remarks. Proctacanthus vittatus  is the most widespread of the 3 species of Proctacanthus  in Hispaniola, occurring at low altitude in southern Haiti and southern and northern Dominican Republic. It is most similar to P. dominicana  , differing primarily by the dense setae on sternite 9 being undivided medially, and the apical fringe of setae on sternite 8 is shorter, finer, and doubled rowed ( Curran, 1951).
