Cosmochthonius cf. semifoveolatus Subías, 1982 View in CoL

Specimens examined: Cerro Otto - under A. chilensis , soil XI-06 (3), III-2006 (1), Leaf litter XI-2006 (10), III-2007 (10), I-2009 (2), LLao LLao - under N. dombeyi , leaf litter XI-2006 (3) and Cerro P. Laguna - under N. antarctica , in leaf litter XI-2006 (2).

Remarks: Cosmochthonius semifoveolatus originally described from Spain. The specimens found share nearly the same morphological traits with C. semifoveolatus originally ( Subías 1982) based on the revision of the genus carried out by Ayyildiz and Luxton (1990). First record for Argentina, if the identification is confirmed.
