Considering that populations of these lizards face conservation threats and this new distributional data, we suggest to update their conservation status.</p> Diego Ramírez-Álvarez, Paula Silva, Iván Salgado ##submission.copyrightStatement## Tue, 07 Nov 2017 00:00:00 -0300 First ever report of a bite by Nabis argentinus Meyer-Dür (Hemiptera: Heteroptera: Nabidae) on a human <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> Marcela Cornelis, Fernando Diez, María del Carmen Coscarón ##submission.copyrightStatement## Tue, 07 Nov 2017 00:00:00 -0300
