Nothofagus obliqua (Mirb.) Oerst., comunmente llamado 'roble pellin' o 'roble', se distribuye entre 33[degrees] 00' y 41[degrees] 30'S, ocupando en Chile la cordillera de la Costa, la Depresion Central y la vertiente oeste de la Cordillera de Los Andes, asi como la vertiente este de esta ultima en el lado Argentino (Donoso et al., 2004).
En el valle destacan los bosques de araucarias, remanentes de coigue (Nothofagus dombeyi), quila (Chusquea quila), lenga (Nothofagus pumilio) y nirre (Nothofagus antarctica), donde tambien sobresalen varios cuerpos de agua como la laguna Huenfuica, la laguna El Plato, la laguna Perdida y laguna Verde, predominando la presencia del rio Momolluco por sobre todos ellos (Figura 4).

Thus, for example, the "Mediterranean deciduous forest dominated by Nothofagus macrocarpa and Ribes punctatum" formation has an extension of 87.355 hectares on a national level, of which 20.044 ha (22%) are represented in protected areas.
Nothofagus (Nothofagaceae) was designated as the outgroup based on previous molecular systematic studies of Fagales (Manos & Steele, 1997; Qiu et al, 1998; Li et al., 2004; APGIV, 2016).

Su formacion vegetal dominante es el bosque humedo siempreverde, compuesto por varios estratos y una rica composicion de especies (e.g., ulmo, Eucryphia cordifolia; coihue, Nothofagus dombeyi; olivillo, Aextoxicum punctatum; tineo, Weinmannia trichosperma).
Las especies identificadas han sido descritas en la literatura asociadas a suelos y sustratos queratinicos en cadaveres animales y humanos [7, 24], heces de herbivoros [10] y sobre hojarasca de Nothofagus pumilio [26], lo cual podria senalar el origen de estas especies sobre la piel de los cadaveres, a partir de la cubierta vegetal de los ecosistemas en estudio.
