Description Herein, we described the first ever reported bite of Nabis argentinus Meyer-Dür 1870 on a human. The bite was registered in the locality Santa Rosa La Pampa, Argentina (36°37'29.02"S, 64°17'19.13"W).  The insect was not provoked by the victim, and thus, the bite was probably not in self-defense. We therefore concluded that the insect bite the victim because it was searching for sources of hydration.

El insecto no fue provocado por la víctima, por lo que probablemente la picadura no fue en defensa propia. Por lo tanto, concluimos que el insecto picó a la víctima en  búsqueda de recursos de hidratación.
