AbstractThe Paradoxosomatidae of the Fiji Islands are discussed. As a result of the reexamination of the type material the taxonomic position of Orthomorpha lampra Chamberlin and Prionopeltis dasys Chamberlin is cleared. O. lampra is a senior synonym of Gyrodrepanum bimontanum (Carl), P. dasys a junior synonym of Anoplodesmus saussurii (Humbert). All the known paradoxosomatid species of the Fiji Islands are introduced from elsewhere, mostly from India.
