Resumen:
Thirteen moss and lichen samples collected in some localities of Neuquen province, Argentina contained tardigrades and their eggs. Twenty species were found and three of them are identified as new to science: Macrobiotus neuquensis sp. nov.; Macrobiotus tehuelchensis sp. nov., Minibiotus claxtonae sp. nov. Photomicrographs and drawings are provided to illustrate the morphological characters of the new species. The new two species of Macrobiotus differ from other species mainly by quantitative characteristics of the bucco-pharyngeal apparatus and eggs whereas the new species of Minibiotus is differentiated from other species by egg characteristics.
