Palaeophileurus sclateri (H. W. Bates, 1887) 

Phileurus sclateri H. W. Bates 1887b: 490  ( Guyana)

Distribution. Guyana: H. W. Bates 1887b: 490 (as Phileurus sclateri  ); Arrow 1937b: 92; Blackwelder 1944: 259; Martínez 1961a: 16 (as Paleophileurus [sic] sclateri  ); Endrödi 1977c: 37, 1985a: 705; Lachaume 1992: 51; Dechambre 1996c: 130 (designation LECTOTYPE Phileurus sclateri  ); Ratcliffe 2002: 339; Neita Moreno and Ratcliffe 2012: 264, 2017b: 523. Suriname: RMNH - NEW COUNTRY RECORD (Suriname, [Sipaliwini], Lucie riv. gebied. VII/ VIII-1926.). French Guiana: Endrödi 1977c: 37, 1985a: 705; Lachaume 1992: 51; Ratcliffe 2002: 339; Neita Moreno and Ratcliffe 2012: 264, 2017b: 523. Other: Martínez 1961a: 16 (Bolivia - as Paleophileurus [sic] sclateri  ); Endrödi 1977c: 37 (Colombia), 1985a: 705 (Colombia); Lachaume 1992: 51 (Colombia); Dechambre 1996c: 130 (Ecuador); Ratcliffe 2002: 339 (Colombia, Ecuador); Ponchel 2011 (not mentioned); Neita Moreno and Ratcliffe 2012: 264 (Colombia, Ecuador, Peru), 2017b: 523 (Ecuador, Peru); Dupuis 2016b (not mentioned).

Note 1. Ratcliffe (2002: 339) invalidates the lectotype of Phileurus sclateri  designated in Dechambre (1996c: 130) based on the fact that this specimen was collected after the species was described.

Note 2. Endrödi (1977c: 37) records Palaeophileurus sclateri  from French Guiana, and this record is copied in Endrödi (1985a: 705), Lachaume (1992: 51), Ratcliffe (2002: 339) and Neita Moreno and Ratcliffe (2012: 264, 2017: 523). However, despite the recent extensive collecting efforts of multiple people in French Guiana, we are unaware of any recent records for that department, and the specimen on which we base our new country record for Suriname comes from the west of that country. We suspect that the record in Endrödi (1977c) is based on a mislabeled or misidentified specimen and that the species reaches its eastern limit in Suriname.
