Pelidnota sumptuosa ( Vigors, 1825)

Rutela sumptuosa Vigors 1825: 542 ( Brazil)

Distribution. Suriname: NZCS - NEW COUNTRY RECORD (Suriname, [Para], Zanderij 8-I-1947. D. C. Geijskes. Savanne.); RMNH. Brazil: Vigors 1825: 542 (as Rutela sumptuosa ); Ohaus 1934: 82; Blackwelder 1944: 238; Machatschke 1972: 25 (treated as a new synonym of P. (Pelidnota) ludovici ); Moore et al. 2017: 264. Venezuela: Blackwelder 1944: 238 (?). Other: Soula 2009: 41 (Colombia–Paraguay); Moore et al. 2017: 264 (Colombia, Paraguay).

Note 1. According to Soula (2009: 41), Pelidnota sumptuosa and P. ludovici Ohaus, 1905 ( 1905b: p. 317) are not synonyms but separate species; his drawings of the genitalia show a clear difference. In Moore et al. (2017: 170), P. ludovici is synonymized with P. burmeisteri tricolor Nonfried, 1894 ( 1894a: 123), which is only known from Brazil well south of the research area.

Note 2. Blackwelder (1944: 238) is uncertain about the occurrence of Pelidnota sumptuosa in Venezuela. Although the species is now known to occur both west (in Colombia) and east (in Suriname) of Venezuela, its presence in Venezuela itself remains to be confirmed.
