no locality = San Cristóbal Island (Chatham), Galapagos.
Formerly placed in monotypic Eribates, on basis of supposed “very long tarsus”. Recent phylogenetic analysis#R suggests its closest living relatives are Middle American populations of M. tyrannulus (see above); morphologically appears closest to M. tyrannulus, and responds to playback only of that species and M. nugator#R. Monotypic.
Galapagos Is (present on all main islands).
