Specimens examined: Cerro Otto - under A. chilensis  , leaf litter XI- 2006 (7).

Remarks: Only three species are included in this genus. One of them was previously reported for Argentina [as Oribatula dactyloscopica Balogh & Mahunka  ] in the provinces of Cordoba ( Balogh & Mahunka 1968) and Buenos Aires (Denegri & Bischoff de Alzuet 1992). Seven specimens were found only in leaf litter from A. chilensis  . The specimens do not exhibit the fingerprint pattern which characterizes J. dactyloscopica  .
