World distribution. Argentina, Brazil, Ecuador, Peru and Chile.

Chilean distribution. From Arica y Parinacota to Los Lagos region ( Fig. 164View FIGURE 164).

Altitudinal range. From coastal to highland ecosystems (1–3,850 m.a.s.l.).

Biology and notes. Platycheirus punctulatum  has been reported on rare occasions visiting flowers of Viola portalesia Gay  in native habitats ( Espinoza et al. 2012) and in opened flowers in pine plantations ( Rivera-Hutinel et al. 2010). Because its habitat has been intensively fragmented by croplands, forestry and urbanization ( Miranda et al., 2017), we applied the precautory principle.

Conservation status. VU B2ab (iii) using AOO = 36 km 2 and nine localities (or subpopulations); EOO = 296,665 km 2.
