Phyllophaga (Phyllophaga) leprieuri ( Blanchard, 1851)

Ancylonycha leprieuri Blanchard 1851: 134 ( French Guiana)

Distribution. French Guiana: Blanchard 1851: 134 (as Ancylonycha leprieuri );

Dalla Torre 1912: 194 (as Lachnosterna leprieuri ). “Guianas”: Blackwelder 1944: 225. Venezuela: Evans and Smith 2009: 96. Other: Frey 1975: 212 (none).

Note 1. Blackwelder (1944: 225) considers Phyllophaga sericata ( Erichson, 1848) (p. 563) a synonym of P. leprieuri ( Blanchard, 1851) (p. 134), but according to Evans and Smith (2009: 96, 130) these are separate species.

Note 2. Ancylonycha sericata Blanchard, 1851 (p. 136) is a junior homonym of Phyllophaga sericata ( Erichson, 1848) and has been given the replacement name P. yucana Saylor, 1937 (p. 321). Phyllophaga yucana is a species from Venezuela and Colombia and has not been recorded for the research area.

Note 3. According to Evans and Smith (2009: 96), Phyllophaga leprieuri ( Blanchard, 1851) occurs in Venezuela, but they do not mention the type locality French Guiana. We suspect this may be the result of a mix-up due to the homonymy mentioned in the previous note, as Ancylonycha sericata Blanchard, 1851 (now P. yucana ) is mentioned exclusively for Venezuela by Dalla Torre (1912: 198). We regard P. leprieuri as not occurring in Venezuela.
