This is from Cordoba, Argentina, but I also saw the same species in Buenos Aires. Villa sp.? Maybe Villa alternata? (Villa alternata is present in Argentina?)

Villa alternata is North American. Several other species of Villa are recorded from Argentina.

I am unfamiliar with North American and South American Villa.
I try to collect books and keys so that I have a well rounded education.
I will work on getting an id but it could take awhile.

It was an inode issues. In practise, I think it means there were more files on the server than the system catered for. The limit has been doubled and we should be save for quite some time.

Error 122 is probably a full disk or over quote.
