I examine the effect of exogenous spatial heterogeneity on the coexistence of competing species using a simple model of non-hierarchical competition for site occupancy on a lattice. The sites on the lattice are divided into two types representing two different habitats or spatial resources. The model features no temporal variability, hierarchical competition, type-dependent interactions or other features traditionally known to support more competing species than there are resources. Nonetheless, stable coexistence of two habitat specialists and a generalist is observed in this model for a range of parameter values. In the spatially implicit mean field approximation of the model, such coexistence is shown to be impossible, demonstrating that it indeed arises from the explicit spatial structure.
