Canthon politus Harold 1868a: 60 ( Colombia, Mexico)

Distribution. French Guiana: A. Schmidt 1922a: 79; Blackwelder 1944: 201 (as C. politum ). “Guianas”: Pereira and Martínez 1956b: 137 (as Geocanthon politus ); Vulcano and Pereira 1964: 672 (as Geocanthon politus ). Venezuela: A.

Other: Harold 1868a: 60 (Colombia, Mexico); Gillet 1911b: 32 (Colombia, Mexico); A. Schmidt 1922a: 79 (Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Mexico); Balthasar 1939e: 205 (Colombia, Ecuador, Mexico); Blackwelder 1944: 201 (Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Mexico - as C. politum ); Pereira and Martínez 1956b: 137 (Colombia, Ecuador, Mexico - as Geocanthon politus ); Vulcano and Pereira 1964: 672 (Central America, Colombia, Ecuador, Mexico - as Geocanthon politus ); Medina et al. 2001: 136 (Colombia).

Note. We are unaware of any recent records of Canthon politus for the Guianas. The old records by Blackwelder (1944: 201), Pereira and Martínez (1956b: 137) and Vulcano and Pereira (1964: 672) seem to have been copied from A. Schmidt (1922a: 79), whose specimen may have been mislabeled. We consider the occurrence of this species in the research area doubtful and in need of confirmation.
