189. Macrobiotus szeptyckii Kaczmarek & Michalczyk, 2009 b   [T]

Macrobiotus szeptyckii   sp. n. ( Kaczmarek & Michalczyk 2009 b)

Terra typica: Argentina (South America)

Argentina:

• 41 ° 11.551´S, 71 ° 49.908´W / 41 ° 12 ′N, 71 ° 50 ′W; 1,100 m asl [1,000 m asl]: Rio Negro Province, Nahul Huapi National Park, Ventisquero Negro, Nothofagus   forest, moss on rocks. Kaczmarek & Michalczyk (2009 b)

• 41 ° 31 ′S, 71 ° 30 ′W; 950 m asl: Type Locality: Rio Negro Province, Nahul Huapi National Park, 70 km south of San Carlos de Bariloche, moss on rocks. Kaczmarek & Michalczyk (2009 b)

Record numbers: Argentina: 2; total: 2.

Remarks: Currently endemic to Argentina, this species belongs to the Macrobiotus harmsworthi   group, which requires a careful examination to ensure correct identification (see Kaczmarek et al. 2011 for a diagnostic key to the group). Macrobiotus szeptyckii   is extremely similar to M. tehuelchensis   , described in the same year and from the same region, and are possible synonymous.
