Etymology Named after the type locality.
Major: large (for flavensHNS group); carinulae originating on anterior margin of the eye spread forward from one another in traveling to the genal border; a broad, continuous band of rugoreticulum extends from the inner margin of one eye to that of the other across the vertex. The true characteristics of this species will remain problematic until fresh material is collected.
measurements (mm) Syntype major: HW 1.20, HL 1.24, SL 0.62, EL 0.20, PW 0.54.
Minor: HW 0.52, HL 0.60, SL 0.48, EL 0.10, PW 0.14.

Figure Upper: syntype, major (a composite from 2 damaged specimens; Carapunco, between Tafi de Valle and Infiernillos, Tucuman, 2600 m, N. Kusnezov). Lower: minor (El Rey, Salta, 2200 m, N. Kusnezov). The major syntype is partly decayed, and may have lost most of its pilosity. The El Rey minor is undecayed, and the pilosity appears intact. Scale bars = 1 mm.
