status

 

Plectromerus distinctus (Cameron)   , restored status from synonymy

Pentomacrus distinctus Cameron, 1910: 136   . Type locality: Haiti, Port­au­Prince .

Plectromerus distinctus: Vitali & Rezbanyai­Reser, 2003: 3   .

Discussion. Vitali & Rezbanyai­Reser (2003) synomymized Plectromerus distinctus (Cameron)   with P. serratus (Cameron)   . The type specimens (BMNH) of both species ( Figs. 1a–b View FIGURE 1 ) were examined carefully and differences between them suggested two species instead of one. The two species are very similar but can be distinguished by the following: P. distinctus   has long, suberect hairs on the elytra and granulose punctures on the pronotum ( Fig. 1c View FIGURE 1 ), whereas P. serratus   lacks the hairs and granules and has microsculpturing on the pronotum ( Fig. 1d View FIGURE 1 ).
