Diversity description:

Andesianidae adults Currently Andesianidae, comprising one genus and three species, are known only from a very restricted region within the Valdivian forests of southern Argentina and Chile. One species (Andesiana brunnea) is represented by only the holotype, but the other two species, particularly A. lamellata, are fairly common within the humid, southern Nothofagus forest. This ancient family probably represents a Gondwanan relict, but it has yet to be discovered in any other region of that former continent (e.g., Australia or South Africa).
