109. Platicrista angustata  ( Murray, 1905 b) sensu lato [T]

Terra typica: Scotland (Europe)

Argentina:

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

• 50 °06′S, 73 ° 18 ′W; 200 m asl: Santa Cruz Province, Los Glaciares National Park, shores of Argentino Lake, near the Onelli glacier, Nothofagus  forests, in the shade, mosses and lichens on trees and rocks. Maucci (1988)

Record numbers: Argentina: 2; total: 2.

Remarks: This species has a largely Holarctic distribution and, with a European type locality, the two reports from Argentina should be confirmed; particularly in the light of P. ramsayi  recently described from Ecuador ( Marley 2006).
