§ Stenocrates laborator ( Fabricius, 1775) 

Scarabaeus laborator Fabricius 1775: 18  ( Brazil)

= Geotrupes thoracicus Eschscholtz 1818: 453  ( Suriname)

Distribution. Guyana: Bodkin 1919: 217. Suriname: Eschscholtz 1818: 453 (as Geotrupes thoracicus  ); Moore et al. 2018b: 293. Brazil: Fabricius 1775: 18 (as Scarabaeus laborator  ); H. W. Bates 1888: 313; Blackwelder 1944: 253; Endrödi 1966a: 430, 1985a: 184; Lachaume 1992: 19; Ratcliffe 2015c: 778; Moore et al. 2018b: 293. Other: H. W. Bates 1888: 313 (Brazil–Mexico); Arrow 1937b: 19 (Mexico); Blackwelder 1944: 253 (Argentina, Mexico); Endrödi 1966a: 430 (Bolivia, Colombia, Guatemala), 1985a: 184 (Bolivia, Colombia, Guatemala); Lachaume 1992: 19 (Bolivia, Colombia, Guatemala); Ratcliffe 2015c: 778 (Bolivia, Colombia, Paraguay); Moore et al. 2018b: 293 (Argentina, Bolivia, Colombia, Paraguay).

Note 1. The records of Stenocrates laborator  from Guyana in Bodkin (1919: 217) and Geotrupes thoracicus  from Suriname in Eschscholtz (1818: 453), the latter of which is copied in Moore et al. (2018b: 293), are likely erroneous. We are unaware of any recent records of this species from the Guianas, it has never been recorded from Venezuela, and the Brazilian records are from locations far from the Guianas. We regard this species as not occurring in the research area.

Note 2. Ratcliffe et al. (2013: 598) consider the records from Mexico and Guatemala in H. W. Bates (1888: 313), Arrow (1937b: 19), Blackwelder (1944: 253), Endrödi (1966a: 430, 1985a: 184) and Lachaume (1992: 19) as erroneous. They specifically state that this species only occurs in South America.
