Saccoderma hastata - not a species from Argentina

not a species from Argentina:
Saccoderma hastata (Eigenmann, 1913)

remarks (translated from publication):
The distribution of Saccoderma hastata is restricted to its type locality: the drainage of the río Magdalena, Colombia (Malabarba, 2003). This is confirmed in the present paper as the records of Ringuelet et al. (1967), sub Odontostilbe hastata, and Monasterio de Gonzo (2003) for the basin of río Juramento, Salta, correspond to Odontostilbe microcephala.
