Archophileurus vervex ( Burmeister, 1847) 

Phileurus vervex Burmeister 1847: 154  ( Brazil - LECTOTYPE)

Distribution. Guyana: Endrödi 1985a: 701; Lachaume 1992: 50. French Guiana: Endrödi 1977c: 33; Duranton 2011: 23; Ponchel 2011: 61; Dupuis 2016b: 110; Di Iorio et al. 2017: 566. “Guianas”: Burmeister 1847: 154 (as Phileurus vervex  ). Brazil: Burmeister 1847: 154 (as Phileurus vervex  ); Endrödi 1977c: 33 (designation LECTOTYPE Phileurus vervex  ); Di Iorio et al. 2017: 566. Other: Burmeister 1847: 154 ( Colombia - as Phileurus vervex  ); Arrow 1937b: 88 ( Argentina, Paraguay, Uruguay); Blackwelder 1944: 258 ( Argentina, Paraguay, Uruguay); Endrödi 1977c: 33 ( Argentina, Bolivia, Ecuador, Paraguay, Uruguay), 1985a: 701 (Guyana–Argentina); Lachaume 1992: 50 (Guyana–Argentina); Di Iorio et al. 2017: 566 ( Argentina, Bolivia, Ecuador, Paraguay, Uruguay).

Note. Burmeister (1847: 154) describes Archophileurus vervex  (as Phileurus vervex  ) from “Süd-Amerika (Columbien, Guyana [= “Guianas”], Brasilien).” Endrödi (1977c: 33) mentions the species for French Guiana, Brazil, Argentina, Bolivia, Ecuador, Paraguay and Uruguay. Endrödi (1985a: 701) states the species is distributed “From Guyana to Argentina,” and this is copied in Lachaume (1992: 50). It thus appears that Endrödi (1985a) unwittingly changed French Guiana to Guyana. Archophileurus vervex  has recently been reported again for French Guiana ( Duranton 2011: 23; Ponchel 2011: 61; Dupuis 2016b: 110; Di Iorio et al. 2017: 566), but we are unaware of any recent records from Guyana. We consider it possible that this species also occurs in Guyana, but this needs to be confirmed.
