§ Oxyligyrus rostratus ( Burmeister, 1847) 

Chalepus rostratus Burmeister 1847: 82  ( Guyana? - LECTOTYPE)

Distribution. Guyana: Endrödi 1966b: 527 (designation LECTOTYPE Chalepus rostratus  ) (?); López- García et al. 2016: 501. French Guiana: Duranton 2011: 20 (?). “Guianas”: Burmeister 1847: 82 (as Chalepus rostratus  ) (?); Endrödi 1969a: 27 (as O. (Oxyligyrus) rostratus  ) (?), 1985a: 238 (as O. (Vulcanoia) rostratus  ). Brazil: Arrow 1937b: 39; Blackwelder 1944: 255; Endrödi 1966b: 527 (as O. (Oxyligyrus) rostratus  ), 1969a: 27 (as O. (Oxyligyrus) rostratus  ), 1985a: 238 (as O. (Vulcanoia) rostratus  ); López-García et al. 2016: 501. Other: Ponchel 2011 (not mentioned); Dupuis 2016b (not mentioned).

Note. Oxyligyrus rostratus  is described as probably from Guyana (= “Guianas”) by Burmeister (1847: 82), with Endrödi (1966b: 527) designating the lectotype. However, Duranton (2011: 13) saw no specimens which were definitely from French Guiana, and the species is not mentioned by Ponchel (2011) and Dupuis (2016b). So far, we have not seen specimens from Suriname, nor have we found any records from other parts of the research area. The distribution of this species appears to be more southern, and we regard it as not occurring in the research area.
