Rostkovia magellanica has hitherto been considered a species of Patagonia and the subantarctic islands from New Zealand to South Georgia. An old report from Ecuador has been considered erroneous, but it has now been rediscovered there. Brief notes on the ecology of the species are given, and the possible origin of its distribution is discussed. Long-distance dispersal by birds is suggested as having caused the disjunct distribution on mainland South America.
