Paratryssaturus zodelus Cook, 1983  

Material examined. South Island. 1/0/0, Selwyn River   GoogleMaps SW of Coalgate, 43° 29.221 S 171° 57.610 E, alt. 235 m asl, 18-xii-2014.

Distribution. Previously known with certainty from the type locality on North Island only, where Cook (1983) collected one male. Cook (1983) collected two females from a location on South Island, but was not certain about the assignment to P. zodelus   . This makes the record of this study the first confirmed record for the South Island.
