§ Subspecies Ptenomela gratiosa gratiosa ( Sharp, 1877)

Antichira gratiosa Sharp 1877: 133 ( Nicaragua)

= Ptenomela epipleurica Ohaus 1925: 79 ( French Guiana) - Soula 2002a: 258 (syn. nov.)

Distribution. French Guiana: Ohaus 1925: 79 (as P. epipleurica ), 1934: 140 (as P. epipleurica ); Blackwelder 1944: 240 (as P. epipleurica ); Machatschke 1972: 62 (as P. epipleurica ). Other: Sharp 1877: 133 (Nicaragua - as Antichira gratiosa ); Ohaus 1934: 140 (Nicaragua, Panama - as P. gratiosa ); Blackwelder 1944: 240 (Nicaragua, Panama - as P. gratiosa ); Machatschke 1972: 62 (Nicaragua, Panama - as P. gratiosa ); Soula 2002a: 258 (Costa Rica, Nicaragua), 2003: 16 (Costa Rica, Nicaragua), 2005: 385 (Panama).

Note. According to Soula (2002a: 258), the specimens of the now synonymized Ptenomela epipleurica mentioned by Ohaus (1925: 79, 1934: 140) for French Guiana are incorrectly labeled, as this species does not occur in the Guianas. The information in Blackwelder (1944: 240) and Machatschke (1972: 62) is apparently copied from Ohaus’ publications.
