§ Gymnetis hebraica ( Drapiez, 1820)

Cetonia hebraïca Drapiez 1820b: 118 ( Brazil)

= Gymnetis bajula Perty 1830: 53 ( Brazil)

Distribution. French Guiana: Delatour et al. 2003: 63. Brazil: Drapiez 1820b: 118 (as Cetonia hebraïca ); Perty 1830: 53 (as G. bajula ); Gory and Percheron 1833: 71, 355; Schenkling 1921: 93; Blackwelder 1944: 263 (as Paragymnetis hebraica ); Ratcliffe 2018: 110. Other: Ratcliffe 2018: 110 ( Argentina, Bolivia, Paraguay, Uruguay).

Note. Delatour et al. (2003: 63) record Gymnetis hebraica for French Guiana but do not mention the somewhat similar looking G. bajula . However, G. bajula is a species known to occur in both Suriname and French Guiana, while G. hebraica has a much more southern distribution and is not present in the research area according to Ratcliffe (2018: 110). We assume that Delatour et al. (2003) have been misled by the physical similarities and the rather confusing nomenclature of these two species, as G. bajula Perty, 1830 is a synonym of G. hebraica ( Drapiez, 1820) , while G. hebraica Gory and Percheron, 1833 (p. 71) is a synonym of the valid species G. bajula ( Olivier, 1789) (p. 82). Although this nomenclatural issue can be extracted from Schenkling (1921: 91, 93) as well as from Blackwelder (1944: 262, 263), it is not mentioned in Ratcliffe (2018, 2019).
