Comments

Pall and Coscarón (2012) mentioned this species from Corrientes, Entre Ríos, La Pampa, Mendoza and San Luis provinces; but there is no bibliographical record or list of material from these areas. In ‘ material studied ’ they reported two localities from each of Tucumán and Córdoba provinces, but we did not find specimens in the collection they studied ( MLP) or in any of the other collections examined, so these records could be based on misidentification   . It is difficult to track the material they studied because they provide no information other than mentioning localities   . Regarding the records from Neuquén, we did not find specimens from the locality they mention, but we did find six specimens from a more southern locality   . They also mentioned Jujuy as a first record although they did not give a record of any material from that province   .

Remarks

Pall and Coscarón (2012) include Xenogenus extensum Distant   in their catalogue, overlooking that it was synonymised by Göllner-Scheiding (1980) under Xenogenus picturatum Berg.
