§ Gromphas aeruginosa ( Perty, 1830)

Onitis aeruginosus Perty 1830: 39 ( Brazil)

Distribution. “Guianas”: Vulcano and Pereira 1967: 566. Brazil (NA): Perty 1830: 39 ( Onitis aeruginosus ); Olsoufieff 1924: 58; Balthasar 1941c: 350; Blackwelder 1944: 208; Barattini and Saenz 1964: 177; Vaz-de-Mello 2000: 193; Figueroa et al. 2012: 3; Cupello and Vaz-de-Mello 2013: 448 (NA), 2015: 954. Venezuela: Olsoufieff 1924: 58; Balthasar 1941c: 350; Barattini and Saenz 1964: 177; Vulcano and Pereira 1967: 566; Hamel-Leigue et al. 2009: 61; Figueroa et al. 2012: 3. “Amazon Basin”: Gillet 1911b: 80; Vulcano and Pereira 1967: 566. Other: Olsoufieff 1924: 58 (Bolivia, Colombia, Peru); Balthasar 1941c: 350 (Bolivia, Colombia, Peru); Blackwelder 1944: 208 (Bolivia); Barattini and Saenz 1964: 177 (Bolivia); Vulcano and Pereira 1967: 566 (Bolivia); Medina et al. 2001: 138 (Colombia); Hamel-Leigue et al. 2009: 61 (Bolivia, Colombia, Peru); Figueroa et al. 2012: 3 (Bolivia, Colombia, Peru); Cupello and Vaz-de-Mello 2013: 448 (Bolivia, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru), 2015: 954 (Bolivia, Peru).

Note. The report of Gromphas aeruginosa from the Guianas in Vulcano and Pereira (1967: 566) is probably incorrect according to Cupello and Vaz-de-Mello (2013: 448). We suspect that at least part of the records from Venezuela concerns G. lemoinei , which has been considered a variety of G. aeruginosa in for example Gillet (1911b: 80) and Blackwelder (1944: 208). Based on records from locations north of the Amazon in the Brazilian states of Amazonas and Pará as mentioned in Cupello and Vaz-de-Mello (2013), we still regard G. aeruginosa as potentially occurring in the Guianas.
