Amblyodus taurus Westwood, 1878 

Amblyodus taurus Westwood 1878: 33  ( Nicaragua)

Distribution. French Guiana: Ponchel 2010a: 9, 2011: 61; Dupuis 2016b: 110. Brazil: Gasca-Álvarez and Aguiar 2008: 221. Other: Westwood 1878: 33 ( Nicaragua); Arrow 1937b: 86 ( Nicaragua, Panama); Blackwelder 1944: 257 ( Nicaragua, Panama); Endrödi 1977c: 15 ( Mexico), 1985a: 693 ( Mexico); Lachaume 1992: 50 ( Mexico, Panama); Gasca-Álvarez and Aguiar 2008: 221 ( Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Panama).

Note. Gasca-Álvarez and Aguiar (2008: 221) record Amblyodus taurus  for Brazil. This was proven to be a misidentification, and their specimens are used by Grossi and Grossi (2011: 23) as the holotype and some of the paratypes of the newly described A. castroi  . Ponchel (2010a: 9, 2011: 61) and Dupuis (2016b: 110) record A. taurus  for French Guiana. Since A. taurus  appears to be restricted to Central America, their specimens may belong to A. castroi  too, or even to a yet undescribed species. Pending further research, we leave these records under A. taurus  .
