§ Canthon (Glaphyrocanthon) viridis ( Palisot de Beauvois, 1805)

Copris viridis Palisot de Beauvois 1805: 24 ( U.S.A.)

Distribution. French Guiana: A. Schmidt 1922a: 82; Blackwelder 1944: 202 (as C. viride ). Brazil (NA): A. Schmidt 1922a: 82 (NA); Blackwelder 1944: 202 (as C. viride ). Other: Palisot de Beauvois 1805: 24 ( U.S.A. - as Copris viridis ); Gillet 1911b: 34 ( Belize, Mexico, U.S.A.); A. Schmidt 1922a: 82 ( Belize, Guatemala, Mexico, Nicaragua, U.S.A.); Balthasar 1939e: 198 ( Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, U.S.A.); Blackwelder 1944: 202 ( Belize, Guatemala, Mexico, Nicaragua, U.S.A. - as C. viride ); Pereira and Martínez 1956b: 133 (Central America, Mexico, U.S.A. - as Glaphyrocanthon (Glaphyrocanthon) viridis ); Martínez et al. 1964a: 8, 9 (Central America, Mexico, U.S.A. - as Glaphyrocanthon viridis ); Vulcano and Pereira 1964: 665 (Central America, Mexico, U.S.A. - as Glaphyrocanthon viridis ); Rivera-Cervantes and Halffter 1999: 109 ( Mexico, U.S.A.).

Note. According to Rivero-Cervantes and Halffter (1999: 79), Canthon viridis belongs to a group of 15 species, some of which were previously considered subspecies of C. viridis , and all of which are restricted to southern North America and Central America. We therefore regard the records in A. Schmidt (1922a: 82) and Blackwelder (1944: 202) from French Guiana and Brazil as erroneous.
