Lagochile cetonioides (Le Peletier and Serville, 1825)

Rutela cetonioides Le Peletier and Serville 1825: 316

Note 1. Three presently recognized subspecies of Lagochile cetonioides have been described, one of which occurs in the research area. The other two are L. cetonioides cetonioides (Le Peletier and Serville, 1825) (recorded from Brazil) and L. cetonioides farwesta Soula, 2005 (recorded from Ecuador).

Note 2. According to Soula (2005: 306), the name of this species should be spelled as Lagochile cetonoides rather than L. cetonioides . This is incorrect, because Le Peletier and Serville (1825: 316) allude to the “Cetoines” (the present subfamily Cetoniinae ) but clearly spell the specific epithet as cetonioides and make no correction regarding this spelling in the errata on page 833.

Subspecies Lagochile cetonioides rosanti Soula, 2005

Lagochile cetonoides [sic] rosanti Soula 2005: 306 ( Guyana)

Distribution. Guyana: Soula 2005: 306 (as L. cetonoides [sic] rosanti). Suriname: Ohaus 1934: 161 (as Lagochile cetonioides [s. l.]); Blackwelder 1944: 242 (as Lagochile cetonioides [s. l.]); Machatschke 1972: 81 (as Lagochile cetonioides [s. l.]); MHCN. French Guiana: Soula 2005: 306 (as L. cetonoides [sic] rosanti), 2010a: 58 (as L. cetonoides [sic] rosanti); Brûlé et al. 2014: 182 (as L. cetonoides [sic] rosanti). Other: Soula 2009: 6 (none - picture - as L. cetonoides [sic] rosanti).

Note. Until 2005 there were no recognized subspecies of Lagochile cetonioides . Accordingly, all pre- 2005 records from the Guianas are found under the name of the species s. l. Although the subspecies L. cetonioides rosanti has not yet been recorded for Suriname, the species is already known from there. Because this subspecies is the only one known from the Guianas, the old records from Suriname must belong to this taxon. Thus, we do not consider our own Surinamese records to be a new country record.
