Hi Quentin
I'm wondering where the map you posted came from. I was wracking my tiny brain trying to figure out what country that was in between Uruguay and Brazil,and touching Paraguay, on the East coast, in light green. In all the maps I compared it to it's part of Brazil.

Sorry, I should have included the link. What they are showing is that the Southern part of Brazil is sometimes included in the El Cono Sur.
