For Suarez-Morales (2011, p.6, 12) the once purportedly cosmopolitan M. dubia (T. Scott, 1904) is now known to contain at least three different species. For the author the species is resticted to Scotland (60°N). For the author, the records of M. dubia from the Southern hemisphere could refer to M. chilensis, M. igniterra
