Paratypes (7): 2 ΨΨ, 1 ɗ, 4 immatures (3 ΨΨ, 1 ɗ), MLP 598 (ventral plate and 6 legs of a Ψ paratype on a slide not labeled as paratype but cited as such in the original description); remaining paratype materials in alcohol, same data as type.

Remarks: In the original description (p. 325) the author reports as type locality: ‘ CHILE: Quebrada Macul, barrio Santiago de Chile, en el distrito de Ñuñca’ (misspelling for Ñuñoa?). According to the original description, 2 paratypes (1 Ψ and 1 ɗ) were deposited in the author’s collection.

Paratypes (8): 4 ΨΨ, 4 ɗɗ, MLP 557 (in alcohol), same data as type.

Remarks: The 8 specimens MLP 557 from Alta Gracia, Córdoba were labeled as paratypes by the author but this status was not established in the original description; 3 ΨΨ and 3 ɗɗ from the original sample were deposited in Schubart’s collection.

macul, Mikroporus granulatus

Remarks: Left gonopod on a slide housed at MZUSP. In the original description, Schubart reported 1 Ψ from the type locality, not presently housed at MLP.

iguazuensis, Leptodesmus

Schubart 1954 a. Notas Mus. La Plata, Zoología 17 (150): 136. Type, ɗ, MLP 582 (legs 1, 2, 5, 10, 15, 20, 25 and 30 on a slide; gonopods on a second slide; rest of the body in alcohol), ARGENTINA: Misiones, P. Iguazú, 14 / 15 ­I­ 1944, Williner coll.

Remarks: The 4 specimens MLP 559 from Iguazú, Misiones, were labeled as paratypes by the author but this status was not established in the original description; 1 ɗ with the same data as the paratypes was deposited in Schubart’s collection.

Remarks: The specimens that Schubart mentions in his original description are 1 ɗ and 3 ΨΨ (all with same number and data as holotype). At the MLP collection, besides the holotype ɗ, there is a vial with a label handwritten by Schubart that reads: ‘ 2 ΨΨ – Allotype’ containing two ΨΨ specimens (none of them individualized as allotype) and also a slide with legs 3, 7, 15 and 30 of a Ψ that presumably correspond to the allotype, but not labeled as so.

Remarks: The sample MLP 597 is labeled as ‘ Camptomorpha  missionensis’, however in the original description the species is named: ‘ Camptomorpha  missiones’, even if under the subtitle ‘Observaciones’ (p. 119) the species is referred to as C. missionensis  .
