Other: Gillet and Boucomont 1927: 206 (South America - as O. hirculus ); Boucomont 1932: 326 ( Argentina, Bolivia, Cuba, Paraguay, Uruguay - as O. hirculus ); Blackwelder 1944: 211 ( Argentina, South America - as O. hirculus ); Medina et al. 2001: 139 ( Colombia - as O. hirculus ); Pulido Herrera and Zunino 2007: 105 ( Argentina, Bolivia, Colombia, Cuba, Paraguay, Uruguay - as O. hirculus ).

Note. To our knowledge, the only record of Onthophagus hircus for the research area is given in Boucomont (1932: 326) as O. hirculus for French Guiana. The lack of recent records makes us doubt its occurrence in the Guianas. We consider the presence of this species in the research area in need of confirmation.
