Cacostola mexicana (Breuning, 1943) 

( Fig. 43View Figures 38–44)

Paratucumaniella mexicana Breuning 1943: 42  ; Breuning 1949: 27 (syn.).

Cacostola mexicana  ; Breuning 1961: 215 (cat.); Marinoni and Martins 1982: 247 (reval.); Chemsak et al. 1992: 124 (checklist); Monné and Giesbert 1994: 195 (checklist); Monné 1994: 36 (cat.); Noguera and Chemsak 1996: 405 (checklist); Monné 2005: 538 (cat.); Monné and Hovore 2006: 274 (checklist); Monné 2018: 729 (cat.).

This species was originally described based on a single specimen from Veracruz, Mexico (see photograph of the holotype at Bezark 2019a). Breuning (1949) synonymized Paratucumaniella  with Cacostola  , and P. mexicana  with Cacostola simplex  . Marinoni and Martins (1982), revalidated the species (translated): “ C. mexicana Breuning  is equally distinct from C. volvula  by having the light pubescence of the distal half of the elytra forming irregular bands, but distinct, strongly contrasting with the dark pubescence around it.” The authors compared Paratucumaniella mexicana  with Cacostola volvula  , because in the same work they revalidated C. simplex  . Breuning (1959) had synonymized C. simplex  with C. volvula  and, accordingly, P. mexicana  with C. volvula  , too.

We know that Marinoni and Martins (1982) based this decision on a photograph taken by Jesus Santiago Moure in the 1970s at USNM ( Fig. 43View Figures 38–44). Apparently, the specimen photographed has a “cotypus” label. However, since the species was described based on a single specimen: “Länge 13 mm, Breite 3 mm. Typ von Mexico: Jalapa in Museum von Hamburg” it cannot be a type (although it does appear to be a specimen of C. mexicana  ).

According to Monné (2018) the species remains known only from Mexico.
