Herrera tigrina ( Boulard, 1986a)   n. comb.

Carineta tigrina Boulard 1986a: 427   . (Tiger Station, French Guiana)

REMARKS. I found a similar problem with the generic assignment of Carineta tigrina   while trying to identify specimens for this study. Boulard (1986a) reports the head width (5.5 mm) being greater than the mesonotum width (5.1 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 tigrina ( Boulard, 1986a)   n. comb.

DISTRIBUTION. The species has been recorded from French Guiana ( Sanborn 2013; 2011a).
