Myiopsitta monachus  [cotorra (Vieillot, 1817)]

HEMIPTERA

ARGENTINA: Salta: Departamento Rivadavia, Misión La Paz, 5 -VIII- 1970, A. Martínez leg., ex Col. Martínez, 4 exx. [ DIOC].

Note: Martínez & Cichero (1972) say that T. delpontei  is always found in parrots’ nests, and give T. delpontei  as found near the River Pilcomayo, in front of Misión La Paz, referred as belonging to Paraguay in Di Iorio & Turienzo (2011 b). Nevertheless, the specimens from the Col. A. Martínez were labelled from Salta, indicating that they were collected in the Argentinian margin of the River Pilcomayo. The general mention of T. delpontei  in birds’ nests from Salta by Carcavallo et al. (1988) may correspond also to these materials.
