§ Archophileurus ovis ( Burmeister, 1847) 

Phileurus ovis Burmeister 1847: 154  ( Brazil - LECTOTYPE)

Distribution. French Guiana: Endrödi 1977c: 32, 1985a: 700; Duranton 2011: 23 (?); Di Iorio et al. 2017: 563. Brazil: Burmeister 1847: 154 (as Phileurus ovis  ); Arrow 1937b: 87; Blackwelder 1944: 258; Endrödi 1977c: 32 (designation LECTOTYPE Phileurus ovis  ), 1985a: 700; Di Iorio et al. 2017: 563. Other: Endrödi 1977c: 32 ( Colombia), 1985a: 700 ( Colombia); Ponchel 2011 (not mentioned); Dupuis 2016b (not mentioned); Di Iorio et al. 2017: 563 ( Argentina, Colombia).

Note. The only records of Archophileurus ovis  for the Guianas that we are aware of are the record for French Guiana in Endrödi (1977c: 32, 1985a: 700) that is copied in Di Iorio et al. (2017: 563), and the uncertain record mentioned in Duranton (2011: 23). Because this species otherwise appears to be restricted to southern Brazil, Argentina and possibly Colombia, we suspect that the record in Endrödi (1977c, 1985a) and Di Iorio (2017) is based on a mislabeled or misidentified specimen. We regard this species as not occurring in the research area.
