89. Hypsibius allisoni Horning, Schuster & Grigarick, 1978   [T]

Hypsibius allisoni Horning et al., 1978   ( Maucci 1988, Binda & Pilato 1999 b)

Terra typica: South Island, New Zealand (Pacific Ocean)

Argentina:

• 50 °06′S, 73 ° 18 ′W; 200 m asl: Santa Cruz Province, Los Glaciares National Park, shores of Argentino Lake, near the Onelli glacier, Nothofagus   forests, in the shade, mosses and lichens on trees and rocks. Maucci (1988)

• 54 ° 17 ′S, 66 ° 42 ′W; 50 m asl: Tierra del Fuego Province, Isla Grande de Tierra del Fuego, outskirts of Cabo San Pablo, peat-moss. Binda & Pilato (1999 b)

Chile:

• 51 ° 34 ′S, 72 ° 36 ′W; 200 m asl: Region XII Magallanes (Región de Magallanes y de la Antártica Chilena), Ultima Esperanza, near Cueva del Milodón, mosses on rocks, in sunlight. Maucci (1988)

• 51 ° 44 ′S, 72 ° 30 ′W; 0 m asl: Region XII Magallanes (Región de Magallanes y de la Antártica Chilena), Puerto Natales, mosses on trees and rocks. Maucci (1988)

Ecuador:

• 00° 11 ′S, 78 ° 36 ′W; 4,500 m asl: Pichincha Province, Pichincha Volcano, soil sample. Pilato et al. (2003 a)

Record numbers: Argentina: 2, Chile: 2, Ecuador: 1; total: 5.

Remarks: Belonging to the convergens   -species complex ( Kaczmarek & Michalczyk 2009 a), which has an apparent global distribution ( McInnes 1994 a), this species complex requires careful examination as members of this group can only be determined via subtle taxonomic details of claws morphology and other morphometric characters (e.g. Miller et al. 2005, Kaczmarek & Michalczyk 2009 a). Hypsibius allisoni   has disjunct Gondwanan distribution, known from New Zealand, Antarctica and South America ( McInnes 1994 a).
