203. Minibiotus sidereus Pilato, Binda & Lisi, 2003   [T]

Minibiotus sidereus   sp. n. ( Pilato et al. 2003 a)

Terra typica: Ecuador (South America)

Ecuador:

• 00° 22 ′S, 78 °09′W; 4,000 m asl: Type Locality: Napo Province, Papallacta Pass, moss ( Leptodontium viticulosoides   ). Pilato et al. (2003 a)

• 00° 35 ′S, 77 ° 52 ′W; 1,950 m asl: Napo Province, Cosanga, moss ( Entodon abbreviatus   ). Pilato et al. (2003 a)

Record numbers: Ecuador: 2; total: 2.

Remarks: Currently endemic to Ecuador, Minibiotus sidereus   is very similar to Minibiotus constellatus   (described from Peru in the same year), and these two species require careful examination to ensure a correct identification (see remarks for M. constellatus   above).
