New Plagiodontes from Argentina

Pizá & Cazzaniga just published a new paper on Plagiodontes, the Argentinan genus they are slowly but steadily revising. In this paper they create a new species, P. parodizi, with type locality Prov. Santiago del Estero, Sierra de Guasayán, 5 km W Santa Catalina.


The new species was previously confounded with P. brackebuschii (Doering, 1877).
