77. Milnesium tardigradum trispinosa Rahm, 1932  [T]

Milnesium tardigradum Doy. 1840  var trispinosum  var. nov  . ( Rahm 1931, 1932) Terra typica: Chile (South America)

Brazil:

• 23 ° 32 ′S, 46 ° 38 ′W; 750 m asl: Type Locality: São Paulo State, neighbourhood of São Paulo, mosses. Rahm (1931, 1932)

Chile:

• 33 ° 20 ′S, 70 ° 36 ′W; 1,400 m asl: Type Locality: Region RM Metropolitana (Región Metropolitana de Santiago), Santiago de Chile and vicinity, Manquehue Mt., dry soil and mosses. Rahm (1931, 1932)

Record numbers: Brazil: 1, Chile 1; total: 2.

Remarks: Subspecies reported from single localities in Chile and Brazil. If the three dorsal spines that define this taxon are not an artefact (i.e. cuticular folds observed in some Milnesium  species), the subspecies should be elevated to a species level, however this requires a redescription based on type material (Michalczyk et al. 2012 ab).
