Macraspis chalcea Burmeister, 1844 

Macraspis chalcea Burmeister 1844: 349  ( French Guiana - LECTOTYPE)

Distribution. Suriname: Ohaus 1934: 154; Blackwelder 1944: 241; Machatschke 1972: 72; Soula 1998: 52. French Guiana: Burmeister 1844: 349; Machatschke 1972: 72; Soula 1998: 52 (designation LECTOTYPE Macraspis chalcea  ). “Guianas”: Ohaus 1934: 154; Blackwelder 1944: 241; Soula 2003: 50. Brazil: Ohaus 1898: 51. Venezuela: Soula 1998: 52, 2003: 50. Other: Ohaus 1934: 154 (Trinidad and Tobago); Blackwelder 1944: 241 (Trinidad and Tobago); Machatschke 1972: 72 (Trinidad and Tobago); Soula 1998: 52 (Trinidad and Tobago), 2003: 50 (Trinidad and Tobago), 2010a (not mentioned).

Note. Ohaus (1898 a: 51) records Macraspis chalcea  for the state of Espírito Santo in Brazil. Ohaus (1934: 154) refers to the older publication but gives the location Suriname rather than Brazil. As Espírito Santo lies over 2500 km from the Guianas and we are not aware of any recent records from Brazil, we assume that the location in Ohaus (1898 a) is erroneous, and that the mentioning of Suriname in Ohaus (1934) is a correction hereof. Whether this species possibly occurs in northern Brazil or is completely absent from this country requires further research.
