Herrera guianaensis (Sanborn, 2011a)   n. comb.

Carineta guianaensis Sanborn 2011a: 392   . (41 km SE Roura on Kaw Rd., 04º32.3214’N, 052º07.420’W, French Guiana)

REMARKS. I found the same problem with the generic assignment of Carineta guianaensis   while trying to identify specimens for this study. I (2011a) reported the head width (5.35 mm) being greater than the mesonotum width (5.05 mm) for this species as well, a characteristic of Herrera   not Carineta   . In addition, the lateral pronotum is not strongly angled mediad in this species as it is in species of Carineta   . Therefore, based on the head being wider than the mesonotum and the shape of the prothorax, the species is reassigned to Herrera   to become Herrera guianaensis (Sanborn, 2011a)   n. comb.

DISTRIBUTION. The species has been recorded only from French Guiana (Sanborn 2011a).
