Plectris sparsesetosa ( Moser, 1924)

Philochlaenia [sic] sparsesetosa Moser 1924: 159 ( French Guiana)

Distribution. Guyana: Frey 1974a: 256. French Guiana: Moser 1924: 159 (as Philochlaenia [sic] sparsesetosa ); Evans and Smith 2009: 291. “Guianas”: Blackwelder 1944: 229 (as Philochlaenia [sic] sparsesetosa ). Other: Frey 1967: 89 (none).

Note. Frey (1974a: 256) mentions Plectris sparsesetosa for Guyana, but not for the type locality French Guiana. We consider his “ Guyana ” a misinterpretation of the location “Guayana: Maroni” as mentioned in the original description by Moser (1924: 159). The Maroni is the border river between Suriname and French Guiana, while there is no location of that name in Guyana. We are not aware of any records outside of French Guiana.
