Remarks: This largely Holarctic species ( McInnes 1994 a) was re-described by Binda & Pilato (1992). Comparing specimens from Rancagua, Chile ( Ramazzotti   1962 a) Binda & Pilato (1992) ascribed the Chilean samples to a new species (see: M. ramazzotti   below). This suggests that all South American Minibiotus furcatus   records should be verified.
