Cyclocephala sexpunctata Laporte, 1840

Cyclocephala sex-punctata Laporte 1840: 125 ( French Guiana)

Distribution. French Guiana: Laporte 1840: 125; Endrödi 1966a: 306; Brûlé et al. 2011a: 191, 2014: 181; Duranton 2011: 15; Ponchel 2011: 60; Moore et al. 2018b: 246. “Guianas”: Arrow 1937b: 16; Blackwelder 1944: 252. Brazil: Endrödi 1966a: 306; Ratcliffe et al. 2013: 220; Moore et al. 2018b: 246. Venezuela: Endrödi 1966a: 306; Moore et al. 2018b: 246. Other: Endrödi 1966a: 306 (Bolivia, Colombia, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Guatemala, Mexico, Panama, Peru), 1985a: 82, 124 (Bolivia–Mexico); Lachaume 1992: 14 (Bolivia–Mexico); Ratcliffe et al. 2013: 220 (Brazil–Mexico, Bolivia, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru); Moore et al. 2018b: 246 (Bolivia, Colombia, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama, Peru).

Note. According to Dupuis (2016b: 102), Cyclocephala sexpunctata does not occur in French Guiana, unlike C. aulustjaorum (called C. brevis by Dupuis) which is very similar except for the male genitalia. All records for this species from French Guiana apparently concern specimens of C. aulustjaorum . However, the type locality for C. sexpunctata is French Guiana. This may be due to a mislabeled specimen, but the matter requires additional research.
