Argentinean distribution

Buenos Aires, Catamarca, Chaco, Córdoba, Corrientes, Entre Ríos, Jujuy, La Pampa, La Rioja, Mendoza *, Misiones, Salta, San Luis *, Santa Fe, Santiago del Estero and Tucumán.

Central and South American distribution

Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Paraguay, Peru and Uruguay ( Göllner-Scheiding 1978a, 1983).

Comments

Pall and Coscarón (2012) mentioned Catamarca and Corrientes as new records, although both provinces have been previously mentioned (Melo et al. 2011; Berg 1878, respectively). Other new records they provided are Neuquén, Río Negro and San Juan, but there is no material from these provinces in the collection they examined (MLP) or in any of the collections studied. They mentioned H. prolixus   as distributed in Mexico, but it has never been recorded from that country.
