§ Bothynus cyclops ( Burmeister, 1847) 

Corynoscelis cyclops Burmeister 1847: 127  (“Guianas” - LECTOTYPE)

Distribution. Guyana: Endrödi 1985a: 276; López-García et al. 2016: 496. French Guiana: Duranton 2011: 22 (?). “Guianas”: Burmeister 1847: 127 (as Corynoscelis cyclops  ); Arrow 1937b: 40; Blackwelder 1944: 255; Endrödi 1969a: 136 (designation LECTOTYPE Corynoscelis cyclops  ). Brazil: Endrödi 1969a: 136, 1985a: 276; López-García et al. 2016: 496. Other: Endrödi 1969a: 136 ( Paraguay), 1985a: 276

( Paraguay); Ponchel 2011 (not mentioned); Dupuis 2016b (not mentioned); López-García et al. 2016: 496 ( Paraguay).

Note. Bothynus cyclops  is described by Burmeister (1847: 127) based on material from “ Guyana,” which in that time could mean either of the Guianas. This record is copied in Arrow (1937b: 40), Blackwelder (1944: 255) and Endrödi (1969a: 136), then unwarrantedly specified to present day Guyana in Endrödi (1985a: 276) and from there copied to López-García et al. (2016: 496). There are no definite records for French Guiana ( Duranton 2011: 20; Ponchel 2011; Dupuis 2016b), and we never encountered this species in Suriname. Because its distribution otherwise appears to be restricted to southern Brazil and Paraguay, we assume that this species does not occur in the research area and that the original specimen of Burmeister was likely mislabeled.
