§ Canthon (Peltecanthon) sulcatus Laporte, 1840

Canthon sulcatus Laporte 1840: 69 ( French Guiana)

= Canthon prasinus Harold 1867b: 78 ( Brazil)

Distribution. French Guiana: Laporte 1840: 69; A. Schmidt 1922a: 81; Blackwelder 1944: 202 (as C. sulcatum ). Brazil: Harold 1867b: 78 (as C. prasinus ); Gillet 1911b: 32, 34 (as C. prasinus ; as C. sulcatus ); A. Schmidt 1922a: 81; Balthasar 1939e: 203; Blackwelder 1944: 201, 202 (as C. prasinum ; as C. sulcatum ); Vulcano and Pereira 1964: 574 (as Peltecanthon sulcatus ); Halffter and Martínez 1967: 88 (as Peltecanthon sulcatus ); Vaz-de-Mello 2000: 191 (as C. (Peltecanthon) sulcatum ). Other: Vulcano and Pereira 1964: 574 ( Argentina - as Peltecanthon sulcatus ).

Note 1. Gillet (1911b: 32, 34) and Blackwelder (1944: 201, 202) treat Canthon prasinus both as a valid species and as a synonym of the present C. sulcatus .

Note 2. According to Halffter and Martínez (1967: 89), Canthon sulcatus only occurs in eastern Brazil, more precisely in the states of Espírito Santo and Rio de Janeiro and in the southern part of Bahia. We suspect Laporte (1840: 69) based the type locality Cayenne (present-day French Guiana) on a mislabeled specimen, which was then copied in A. Schmidt (1922a: 81) and Blackwelder (1944: 202). The record from Argentina in Vulcano and Pereira (1964: 574) is likely incorrect as well for similar distributional reasons.
