Microcanus minor ( Bates, 1885) 

= Oncideres paurosoma Noguera, 1993;  syn. nov.

Remarks. Oncideres paurosoma Noguera, 1993  was described from four specimens (one male, three females) from Guerrero and Oaxaca, Mexico. Taricanus minor Bates, 1885  was described from a series of specimens collected in Jalapa (Veracruz), Mexico. Dillon and Dillon (1945) later proposed the genus Microcanus  for this latter species. Examination of the female lectotype specimen of M. minor  (BMNH) and a female paratype specimen (ACMT) of O. paurosoma  revealed no characters to separate the two species ( Fig. 2View Figure 2 a–d). Based on the absence of morphological features to separate the two species and similar distribution, Oncideres paurosoma Noguera, 1993  is synonymized with Microcanus minor ( Bates, 1885)  .
