Status Hartman (1956; 1959) followed by Holthe (1986b) indicated that Thelepus haitiensis belongs to T. setosus (de Quatrefages, 1865). Nevertheless, after checking topotype specimens of T. setosus (AMNH 657 (3) Saint Vaast-la-Hogue, France, IV.1913). Londoño-Mesa (2009) consider these two species different, because of the greater number of branchial filaments in T. haitiensis. See more details in the article. [details]
