Note. Burmeister (1847: 101) describes Heteronychus tumulosus (now a synonym of Tomarus cuniculus ) from “St. Domingo” and the U.S.A. He refers here to Palisot de Beauvois (1811). As explained in the first note under Tomarus bituberculatus , the “St. Domingo” mentioned by Palisot de Beauvois (1811) refers to the present country of Haiti. Given his reference, we interpret the record in Burmeister (1847) as such.
