§ Hemiphileurus variolosus ( Burmeister, 1847)

Phileurus variolosus Burmeister 1847: 156 ( Colombia - LECTOTYPE)

Distribution. French Guiana: Endrödi 1978: 90; Ratcliffe 2001: 442; Ratcliffe and Cave 2006: 322. Venezuela: Arrow 1937b: 88; Blackwelder 1944: 258; Endrödi 1978: 90; Ratcliffe 2001: 442; Ratcliffe and Cave 2006: 322. Other: Burmeister 1847: 156 (Colombia - as Phileurus variolosus );

Arrow 1937b: 88 ( Colombia); Blackwelder 1944: 258 ( Colombia) ; Endrödi 1978: 90 ( Colombia - designation LECTOTYPE Phileurus variolosus , Costa Rica, Ecuador, Trinidad and Tobago), 1985a: 715 ( Central America–Ecuador ) ; Ratcliffe 2001: 442 ( Colombia, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Panama, Trinidad and Tobago); Ratcliffe and Cave 2006: 322 ( Colombia, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Honduras, Nicaragua, Panama, Trinidad and Tobago); Ponchel 2011 (not mentioned); Dupuis 2016b (not mentioned).

Note. Endrödi (1978: 90) records Hemiphileurus variolosus for French Guiana, and this record is copied in Ratcliffe (2001: 442) and Ratcliffe and Cave (2006: 322). However, we are not aware of any recent records from the research area. The species seems to have a more western distribution. Because of this, we assume the specimen from French Guiana in the MNM (= MNCN) as mentioned in Endrödi (1978) has been mislabeled. We regard this species as not occurring in the research area.
