3 taxa of Hypolestes can be re- cognized by penis morphology: trinitatis Gundlach, 1888 occurring on Cuba, clara (Calvert, 1891) on Jamaica, and possibly both of these taxa plus another unnamed one on Hispaniola. These taxa might represent 3 spp.,3 sspp., or 2 spp, one of them with 2 sspp. More specimens from Haiti are needed to solve the problem.
