Hoplopyga singularis ( Gory and Percheron, 1833)

Gymnetis singularis Gory and Percheron 1833: 369 ( Mexico)

Distribution. French Guiana: Antoine 2008: 251. Brazil: Antoine 2008: 251; Shaughney and Ratcliffe 2015: 630. Venezuela: Shaughney and Ratcliffe 2015: 630. Other: Gory and Percheron 1833: 73, 369 (Mexico - as Gymnetis singularis ); Schenkling 1921: 100 (treated as a synonym of H. albiventris ); Blackwelder 1944: 263 (treated as a synonym of H. albiventris ); Shaughney and Ratcliffe 2015: 630 (Argentina, Colombia, Paraguay).

Note 1. Antoine (2008: 251) records Hoplopyga singularis for French Guiana, but this is based on a single old specimen. The presence of this species in the research area needs to be confirmed.

Note 2. According to Shaughney and Ratcliffe (2015: 630), the type locality “ Mexico ” for Hoplopyga singularis mentioned in Gory and Percheron (1833: 369) is different from the label on the holotype which says “Brasilia.” This species is in fact restricted to South America and does not occur in Mexico.
