186. Macrobiotus spectabilis Thulin, 1928 sensu  lato [T]

Terra typica: Russia (Asia)

Argentina:

• 24 ° 45 ′S, 65 ° 28 ′W; 1,300 m asl: Salta Province, road from Salta to San Lorenzo, lichens on tree. Claps & Rossi (1984)

• 25 ° 38 ′S, 65 ° 39 ′W; 1,250 m asl: Salta Province, road from Cafayate to Salta, mosses on tree in the mountains. Claps & Rossi (1984)

Record numbers: Argentina: 2; total: 2.

Remarks: A largely Palaearctic species distribution but with two reports from the Americas ( McInnes 1994 a). This Argentinean records ( Claps & Rossi 1984) is the only two from South America, and we suggest it is reexamined via modern taxonomy.
