Certainly, the information of the geographical distribution of the studied species is still poor and future changes are expected. Nevertheless, they allow a rough over view on their distributional pattern.

Seven species clearly show insufficient data regarding their distribution if compared with the remaining 11 species, including Eleusis insignis  ( México: Hidalgo; Guatemala: Quiche; Fig. 1View FIGURE 1 b), Holotrochus arcuatus  ( México: Hidalgo; Nicaragua: San Carlos; Costa Rica: La Selva; Fig. 2View FIGURE 2 a), H. politus  ( México: Hidalgo and Veracruz; Costa Rica: Guanacaste and Puntarenas; Panamá: Colon; Ecuador: Sucumbios; Fig. 2View FIGURE 2 b), H. rufopygus  ( México: Oaxaca and Veracruz; Guatemala: Purulá and Verapaz; Fig. 3View FIGURE 3 b), Leptochirus cephalotes  (six records located on the Mexican Plateaus that is a biogeographic province widespread considerably in México, where this species was recorded at numerous places; Fig. 3View FIGURE 3 a), Scaphidium theni  (two records: Hidalgo and Veracruz, México; Fig. 2View FIGURE 2 a), and Belonuchus bidens  (several records in México, but only one historical record in Central America, Chontales, Nicaragua; Fig. 1View FIGURE 1 b). Some similar cases as the previously mentioned are commented in Márquez and Asiain (2006).

The distributional data of the remaining 11 species seem to be sufficiently complete to derive a rough area of their distribution. Creophilus maxillosus  shows a wide distribution in America and other continents, e.g. Europe ( Navarrete-Heredia et al. 2002), so it is excluded from the discussion of species mainly distributed in South and Central America.

The 17 analyzed species shows Neotropical distribution in a broad sense; two of these species seem to have restricted distributions; i.e., they occur in restricted small geographic areas compared with the remaining species. These are Leptochirus cephalotes  (several records in the South of the Mexican Plateaus; Fig. 3View FIGURE 3 a) and Scaphidium theni  (Veracruz and Hidalgo, México; Fig. 2View FIGURE 2 a). A similar distribution as the last species has been detected in Peplomicrus mexicanus  ( Staphylinidae  : Micropeplinae  ) and in the Scarab beetles Bolbelasmus rotundipennis  , Neoathyreus mixtus  , Plusiotis badeni  and Chrysina peruviana  . This distributional pattern has been named "South- Orient of México " (Márquez & Asiain 2012; Morón  & Márquez 2012).

Nine species show a Mesoamerican distribution, which extends from one of the Central American countries, i.e. Panamá or further north, to different parts of México. Regarding this distributional pattern, at least three variants could be detected (called sub-patterns) depending on their extension within México:

A) Sub-pattern Mesoamerican—South Orient of México: Central America and the oriental parts of México including the states of Hidalgo, Querétaro or/and San Luis Potosí. This sub-pattern is represented by Belonuchus bidens  , Eleusis insignis  , Holotrochus arcuatus  and Nacaeus honduranus  ( Figs. 1View FIGURE 1 b, 2 a, 3 a). It has been previously observed in at least 21 species of Staphylinidae  , eight of Melolonthidae  , two of Scarabaeidae  , and one of Cerambycidae  , Curculionidae  , Lampyridae  and Lycidae  (Márquez 2006, 2011; Márquez & Asiain 2006, 2009, 2012; Márquez & Morrone 2004; Morón  & Márquez 2012; Morrone & Márquez 2001; Navarrete-Heredia et al. 2002). Recently, analyzing the distribution of Odonata  species from several cloud forests in Hidalgo State, México, this sub-pattern was also detected in one species of the family Coenagrionidae  and one species of the family Libellulidae  (J. A. Escoto-Moreno pers. comm.).

B) Sub-pattern Mesoamerican—South Orient and South Occident of México ("Y" shaped distribution from south to north): Mesoamerican species of this sub-pattern reach different latitudes in México, mainly along the lowlands of both slopes of the country. Holotrochus rufopygus  and Leptochirus edax  can be included here ( Fig. 3View FIGURE 3 b). This sub-pattern has been also detected in some other Coleoptera  families, i.e. Cerambycidae  , Curculionidae  , Lampyridae  and Scarabaeidae  (one species each), four species of Melolonthidae  and five of Staphylinidae  ( Arce & Asiain 2008; Asiain et al. 2010; Márquez 2003; Márquez & Morrone 2004; Márquez & Asiain 2012; Márquez et al. 2015; Morón  & Márquez 2012; Morrone & Márquez 2001). It is also congruent with the distribution of one species of Gomphidae  ( Odonata  ; J. A. Escoto-Moreno pers. comm.).

C) Sub-pattern Mesoamerican sensu lato: this includes records from Central America and wide parts of México compared with the previous two sub-patterns. It includes several southern and central biogeographic provinces of the country and parts of the Mexican Plateau. Three species show this variant: Eleusis bicolor  , Platydracus apicipennis  and P. fulvomaculatus  ( Figs. 1View FIGURE 1 a, 2 a, 5 b). The geographical distribution of several other beetle species is congruent with this sub-pattern, such as four species of Melolonthidae  , one from Scarabaeidae  , two from Silphidae  and eight of Staphylinidae  (Márquez 2006; Márquez & Asiain 2012; Morón  & Márquez 2012; Morrone & Márquez 2001; Navarrete-Heredia 2009); one species of Odonata  from the family Aeshnidae  and another one from Coenagrionidae  also show this type of distribution (J. A. Escoto-Moreno pers. comm.).

The last pattern is represented by six species showing a Neotropical distribution in a broad sense. It includes one or several South American countries, Central America (sometimes Antilles) and México. This pattern can be divided in at least two sub-patterns depending on the distribution in México:

A) Sub-pattern Neotropical—South Orient of México: it includes Holotrochus politus  , Lispinus paratardus  , Nacaeus opacus  , Tannea tenella  and Thoracophorus sallaei  , distributed from South America to the Oriental slope of México ( Figs. 2View FIGURE 2 b, 4 a, 4 b, 5 a). This sub-pattern has been also observed in several species of different families of Coleoptera  , such as Curculionidae  , Melolonthidae  and Passalidae  (one species each), Scarabaeidae  (three species) and Staphylinidae  (two species) (Asiain et al. 2010; Márquez & Asiain 2012; Morón  & Márquez 2012; Morrone & Márquez 2001; Reyes-Castillo 2010). In Odonata  , one species of Coenagrionidae  shows this sub-pattern, too (J. A. Escoto-Moreno pers. comm.).

Irmler (2012 a, 2012 b) reported a group of five species of Lispinus  (including L. paratardus  ) and a geographic group of several species of Tannea  (including T. tenella  ) found over tropical, subtropical and mountainous tropical zones from Brazil to México, that probably correspond with this sub-pattern.

B) Sub-pattern Neotropical sensu lato: it includes records from South America to México, where several southern and central biogeographic provinces are inhabited, some places of the Oriental and Occidental slopes in the lowland, and some parts of the Mexican Plateau. Eleusis pallidipennis  follows this sub-pattern ( Fig. 2View FIGURE 2 b). It coincides with that of Lispinus sinuatocollis  , which is considered to have abroad distribution from South of México to central Brazil ( Irmler 2009).

The previously discussed distributional patterns may be supported when other biological groups are analyzed containing species with similar distribution. Actually, these described patterns can be proposed as hypotheses of primary biogeographic homology (sensu Morrone 2007), which postulates a historical biogeographic relationship among geographical areas. This means that the components (species) have remained as a geographical unit over long periods of time sharing their own biological and geological events. However, their relationships cannot be discovered without an analysis of cladistic biogeography that requires knowledge about the phylogenetic relationships of the taxa of each pattern.
