Venezuela: Ohaus 1905b: 290, 1934: 154; Blackwelder 1944: 242; Machatschke 1972: 72; Soula 1998: 47, 111, 2003: 46, 47. Other: Blanchard 1851: 206 (Nouv.-Grenade [= Colombia?]); Ohaus 1905b: 290 (Colombia, Ecuador), 1934: 154 (Colombia, Ecuador, Trinidad and Tobago); Blackwelder 1944: 242 (Colombia, Ecuador, Guatemala, Mexico, Panama, Trinidad and Tobago); Machatschke 1972: 72 (Colombia, Ecuador, Trinidad and Tobago); Soula 1998: 47, 111 (Colombia - designation NEOTYPE Antichira melanaria , Ecuador), 2003: 46, 47 (Colombia, Ecuador), 2010a (not mentioned).

Note. Ohaus (1905b: 290, 1934: 154), Blackwelder (1944: 242) and Machatschke (1972: 72) incorrectly regard Macraspis aterrima ( Waterhouse, 1881) (p. 538) and M. melanaria as synonyms. These species are treated separately in Soula (1998: 47, 2003: 46, 47). Macraspis aterrima is only known from Central America, while M. melanaria is restricted to South America.
