Paroppia Hammer 

First record for Argentina.

Paroppia  n. sp. 1

Specimens examined: Cerro P. Laguna under N. antarctica  leaf litter XI- 2006 (1), soil XI- 2006 (1). 270 µm.

Remarks: Genus originally described from New Zealand with P. lebruni Hammer  as type species. There are only four recognized species for the genus Paroppia Hammer.  The shape of sensillus (geniculated, with four distal parallel lines of ciliae) is very different in P. l e b r u n i Hammer.
