Subspecies Macraspis pseudochrysis pseudochrysis Landin, 1956

Macraspis pseudochrysis Landin 1956a: 10 , 16 ( Suriname, French Guiana, Brazil, Argentina, Bolivia, Peru)

Distribution. Suriname: Ohaus 1934: 153 (as M. chrysis ); Blackwelder 1944: 241 (as M. chrysis ); Landin 1956a: 10, 16; MHCN; RMNH. French Guiana: Ohaus 1934: 153; Blackwelder 1944: 241; Landin 1956a: 10, 16; Soula 2005: 386, 2010a: 58; Brûlé et al. 2011a: 192, 2014: 182; Brûlé and Touroult 2013: 40; MHCN; RMNH. “Guianas”: Machatschke 1972: 70 (as M. chrysis ); Soula 1998: 44, 2003: 44. Brazil: Ohaus 1934: 153 (as M. chrysis ); Blackwelder 1944: 241 (as M. chrysis ); Landin 1956a: 10, 16; Machatschke 1972: 70 (as M. chrysis ); Soula 1998: 44, 2003: 44. Venezuela ( EO): Soula 1998: 44, 2003: 44, 2005: 386; Kirmse and Ratcliffe 2019: 153 ( EO). Other: Ohaus 1934: 153 (Bolivia, Peru - as M. chrysis ); Blackwelder 1944: 241 (Argentina, Bolivia, Peru - as M. chrysis ); Landin 1956a: 10, 16 (Argentina, Bolivia, Peru); Machatschke 1972: 70 (Bolivia, Peru - as M. chrysis ); Soula 1998: 44 (Peru), 2005: 386 (Colombia).

Note. Ohaus (1934: 153, 154), Blackwelder (1944: 241, 242) and Machatschke (1972: 70, 72) all list Macraspis chrysis and M. lucida as separate species. From Landin (1956a: 10) it may be concluded that their M. chrysis is conspecific with M. pseudochrysis , while their M. lucida is the true M. chrysis as described by Linnaeus. Their records are listed here accordingly. It is uncertain to which of these species De Geer (1774: 319), Erichson (1848: 562) and Bodkin (1919: 217) refer, and their records are not included here.
