Considering that populations of these lizards face conservation threats and this new distributional data, we suggest to update their conservation status.</p> 2017-11-07T00:00:00-03:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## First ever report of a bite by Nabis argentinus Meyer-Dür (Hemiptera: Heteroptera: Nabidae) on a human 2017-11-28T12:33:20-03:00 Marcela Cornelis Fernando Diez María del Carmen Coscarón <p>Herein, we described the first ever reported bite of <em>Nabis argentinus</em> Meyer-Dür 1870 on a human. The bite was registered in the locality Santa Rosa La Pampa, Argentina (36°37'29.02"S, 64°17'19.13"W).&nbsp; The insect was not provoked by the victim, and thus, the bite was probably not in self-defense. We therefore concluded that the insect bite the victim because it was searching for sources of hydration.</p> 2017-11-07T00:00:00-03:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement##
