Plagiolabra von Schulthess has only two recognized species and both were only recorded previously from Argentina and Paraguay. The two species of the genus were collected in Brazil for the first time, indicating that the biota of Mato Grosso do Sul has elements of the Chacoan province, thus indicating the importance for conservation of this area which is the only representative of the Chaco biome in Brazil.
