Homonota horrida

1861 Gymnodactylus horridus Burmeister
Wallsaurus horridus Underwood 1954
Homonota horrida Kluge 1964
1895 Gymnodactylus mattogrossensis Berg (Kluge 1964)

Remarks: The taxonomic history of this species has been confused. It has been treated as a valid species (e.g., Kluge 1964; Pincheira-Donoso 2002) or as a synonym of fasciata (e.g., Trutnau, Monzel & Consul 2016). Confirmed as a valid species by Cacciali, Morando, Medina, Köhler, Motte & Avila (2017). Previously reported from Brazil based on the type locality ("Mato Grosso") of mattogrossensis, which at the time of the description referred to a much larger region than today, however, Kluge (1964) believed the type to have come from the current state of Mato Grosso. Costa & Bérnils (2018), however, did not regard the species as occurring in Brazil. Records from Bolivia refer to septentrionalis (Cacciali, Morando, Medina, Köhler, Motte & Avila 2017).
Distribution: Argentina, Paraguay.
