Cyclocephala quercina Burmeister, 1847

Cyclocephala quercina Burmeister 1847: 54 ( French Guiana - LECTOTYPE)

= Cyclocephala obesa Burmeister 1847: 59 ( Guyana - LECTOTYPE) - Dechambre and Duranton 2005: 67 (syn. nov.)

Distribution. Guyana: Burmeister 1847: 59 (as C. obesa ); Endrödi 1966a: 268 (designation LECTOTYPE Cyclocephala obesa ), 1985a: 98, 139 (as C. obesa ); Moore et al. 2018b: 237. Suriname: MHCN - NEW COUNTRY RECORD (Suriname, Para, 1 km W of Zanderij, (5°27′37″N, 55°13′21″W). 5-I-2011. A. J. Hielkema. On UV/HPL in savanna forest.); NZCS. French Guiana: Burmeister 1847: 54; Endrödi 1966a: 268, 294 (as C. obesa ; as C. quercina ); Endrödi 1985a: 98, 139 (as C. obesa ); Dechambre 1991: 124 (designation LECTOTYPE Cyclocephala quercina ); Duranton 2011: 14 (as C. obesa ; as C. quercina ); Ponchel 2011: 60; Dupuis 2016b: 109; Moore et al. 2018b: 237. “Guianas”: Arrow 1937b: 13, 15 (as C. obesa ; as C. quercina ); Blackwelder 1944: 252 (as C. obesa ; as C. quercina ). Venezuela: Endrödi 1966a: 268 (as C. obesa ); Endrödi 1985a: 98, 139 (as C. obesa ); Moore et al. 2018b: 237. Other: Endrödi 1966a: 268 (as C. obesa ); Endrödi 1985a: 98, 139, 147 (Costa Rica, Ecuador, Honduras, Trinidad and Tobago, U.S.A. as C. obesa ; none - as C. quercina ); Moore et al. 2018b: 237 (Ecuador, Trinidad and Tobago).

Note 1. Endrödi (1966a: 294, 1985a: 147) mentions not seeing any specimens of Cyclocephala quercina , but according to Endrödi (1966a: 268, 1985a: 98, 139) he did examine specimens of C. obesa .

Note 2. According to Ratcliffe (2003: 225), the records in Endrödi (1966a: 268, 1985a: 98, 139) of Cyclocephala obesa (now a synonym of C. quercina ) from Costa Rica, Honduras and the U.S.A. are incorrect, as this is a South American species.

Note 3. Despite the synonymization of Cyclocephala obesa with C. quercina in Dechambre and Duranton (2005: 67) , Duranton (2011: 14) lists both names again as separate species. The reason for this is unknown to us.
