172. Macrobiotus nuragicus Pilato & Sperlinga, 1975 sensu  lato [T]

Terra typica: Italy (Europe)

Argentina:

• 41 ° 14 ′S, 71 ° 18 ′W; 1,050 m asl: Rio Negro Province, Challuaco stream, mosses from rock in water. Rossi & Claps (1991)

Record numbers: Argentina: 1; total: 1.

Remarks: This species belongs to the harmsworthi  group and has a rather disjunct distribution ( McInnes 1994 a). The group requires careful taxonomic analysis including egg morphology ( Kaczmarek et al. 2011). The South American record is a potential misidentification.
