Aleochara bonariensis Lynch 1884: 70  (description, type locality: “Chacabuco” [ Argentina]). Fauvel 1887: 230 (revision). Feynes 1921: 416 (catalogue, as “species of doubtful systematic position”). Bernhauer & Scheerpeltz 1926: 778 (catalogue, as junior subjective synonym of A. lateralis  ). Blackwelder 1943: 560 (catalogue, as junior subjective synonym of A. lateralis  ). Blackwelder 1944: 167 (catalogue, as junior subjective synonym of A. lateralis  ). Ashe 2002: 165 (catalogue, as junior subjective synonym of A. lateralis  ). Newton et al., 2005: 64 (checklist, as junior subjective synonym of A. lateralis  ). Caron et al. 2008: 831 (checklist, as valid species).

Aleochara pseudochrysorrhoa Caron et al. 2008: 828  (description, type locality: “Curitiba – PR – Brazil \ Centro Politécnico”). Almeida & Mise 2009: 239 (checklist of forensic fauna, geographic distribution). New synonym.

Type material: A. bonariensis  Syntypes: Two specimens, one male and one female, deposited in IRSNB ( Fig. 7View FIGURES 1–7): (1) “Chacabuco” [white label, handwritten]; (2) “Types” [white label, handwritten]; (3) “Coll. R. I. Sc. N. B.” [white label, printed in black]. Note 1: According to ICZN (1999) article 72.4.1.1, “For a nominal species or subspecies established before 2000, any evidence, published or unpublished, may be taken into account to determine what specimens constitute the type series”. So, we assume this is the type material of A. bonariensis  by the information of label (2) and the specimen locality, which coincides with the type material location. Note 2: Lynch did not mention the number of collected specimens in the type series. As a conservative approach (following article 72.1.1, ICZN 1999), we suggest that these specimens should be considered as syntypes  .

MALROWGRIM,.”. MZUSP: Brazil: Three specimens: (1) “BRASIL\ Anita Garibadi\ Est. Sta. Catar.\ Col.: DIRINGS”; (2) “ Aleochara  ”.

Diagnosis: Aleochara bonariensis  is very similar to A. chrysorrhoa  and differs from it by the tergum VIII of male gently serrate on posterior margin, with more than 20 very short teeth, apex of median lobe of the aedeagus toothless and apical one-third straight in lateral view; and capsule of spermatheca globose.

Redescription: BL: 8.0 mm. EW: 2.0 mm. Body brown to dark brown with appendices and apex of abdomen lighter. Some specimens from Argentina (including the syntypes of A. bonariensis  ) have elytra reddish. Dorsal surface glossy and covered with thin golden yellowish setae with setigerous pores impressed.

Head: with coarse setigerous punctation; disc with sparse pubescence directed mediad and anterad. Antennae with antennomere 2 half length of first and slightly narrower the first; 3 longer than 2; 4 subquadrate to slightly transverse; 5–10 similar in shape, distinctly transverse, 10 slightly narrower than 9; 11 twice longer than the previous one, semi-triangular in shape; 1–4 glossy with some long black setae; 5–11 dull and covered by very short white setae, with some long black setae on apex of each antennomere and in 11 with long black setae on a transversal circular line in the middle of the antennomere.

Thorax: pronotum with setigerous punctuation; setae directed posterad and laterad elsewhere. Mesoventral process rounded apically. Elytra with thin setigerous punctuation, denser than those on pronotum; setae directed posterad.

Abdomen: distinctly narrowed posteriorly, maximum width of tergum X about one-third of apical width of tergum VII; terga coarse setigerous punctuation, similar to those on head, pubescence sparse, directed posterad.

Male: tergum VIII as wide as long; posterior margin emarginate at the middle, gently serrate, with more than 20 very short teeth ( Fig. 65View FIGURES 65–70). Sternum VIII wider than long; posterior margin truncate ( Fig. 66View FIGURES 65–70); Tergum IX with asymmetrical ventral struts, the left shorter than the right one. Tergum X with anterior margin and posterior margin truncate ( Fig. 67View FIGURES 65–70). Aedeagus: median lobe elongate and base bulbous ( Fig. 69View FIGURES 65–70); apex toothless, apical one-third straight in lateral view ( Fig. 70View FIGURES 65–70).

Female: tergum VIII as wide as long; posterior margin slightly emarginate at the middle ( Fig. 71View FIGURES 71–74). Sternum VIII wider than long; posterior margin broadly rounded, somewhat truncate at the middle, with short setae restricted to posterior margin ( Fig. 72View FIGURES 71–74). Tergum IX with very short and symmetrical ventral struts. Tergum X with anterior margin somewhat curved and posterior margin very slightly emarginated at the middle ( Fig. 73View FIGURES 71–74). Spermatheca Lshaped, and without apical invagination ( Fig. 74View FIGURES 71–74).

Taxonomic note: after thorough study of the syntypes of A. bonariensis  (male and female), holotype of A. pseudochrysorrhoa  (male) and females previously identified as A. pseudochrysorrhoa  , all these species names are here synonymized. However, the specimens from Argentina (including the syntypes of A. bonariensis  ) have elytra distinctly reddish and different from the rest of the body color, while the specimens from Brazil have elytra very similar to the rest of body color.

Geographical records: Material examined: Argentina (Chacabuco – Type locality; Buenos Aires; Córdoba); Brazil (Minas Gerais: Barbacena and Catas Altas; Paraná: Campina Grande do Sul, Curitiba, Palotina, and Toledo; Rio de Janeiro: Teresópolis; Santa Catarina: Anita Garibaldi and Nova Teutonia) ( Fig. 75View FIGURE 75).

Natural history: associated with decomposing animals (pig, cat, fish), in “fresh” to “butyric fermentation” decomposition stages ( Caron et al.2008:831; Almeida & Mise 2009:239). Some specimens were collected using Shannon, FIT and pitfall traps.

Aleochara verecunda Sharp, 1876  — Species Inquirenda

Aleochara verecunda Sharp 1876: 69  (description, type locality: “Tapajós”). Duvivier 1883: 101 (catalogue). Bernhauer & Sheerpeltz 1926: 779 (catalogue). Blackwelder 1944: 167 (checklist). Caron et al. 2008: 833 (checklist). Fery 2013: 81 (checklist).

Type material: Holotype, female ( Sharp 1876: 70), not studied. Deposited in BMNH ( R. Booth, personal communication). 

Remarks: Sharp (1876) described the species as similar to A. prisca  which differs from it by "pale basal joints of the antennae". However, we received one specimen from FMNH identified by Bernhauer as A. verecunda  , and after the dissection and study of the terminalia, it was identified as A. bugnioni  .
