Distribution. Argentina: Catamarca and Corrientes ( Brailovsky 1986); Brazil and Paraguay ( Packauskas 2010).

Material examined. 2♂, 19-XI-2008, Zamudio & Colleselli Gómez de Olivera colls., PNI0320-1 ( MLP)  ; 1♂, 11-XII-2008, Zamudio & Colleselli Gómez de Oli- vera colls., PNI0322 ( MLP)  .

Remarks. First record for Misiones province.

This species belongs to the vacillans group character- ized by having a slender body, acutely projecting humeral angles, and black or reddish brown claval margin. Scamurius marianae  can be distinguished by the shape of the postero-ventral edge of the pygophore with a shorter medial notch delimited laterally by two monticular prom- inences adjacent to the midline to the sides of which there are two longer processes projecting ( Brailovsky 1986).
