Note. Endrödi (1976: 138) and Ratcliffe (1976: 107) were apparently unaware of each other’s work before publication, resulting in Strategus julianus  being made both a subspecies (by Endrödi) and a synonym (by Ratcliffe) of S. aloeus  . Each author adhered to his own interpretation in subsequent works. Here, we follow Ratcliffe (1976) in his view of S. julianus  as a synonym of S. aloeus  .
