§ Chlorota aulica Burmeister, 1844 

Chlorota aulica Burmeister 1844: 364  ( Brazil - LECTOTYPE)

= Chlorota metallica Burmeister 1844: 363  ( French Guiana - LECTOTYPE) - Soula 2002a: 135 (syn. nov.)

Distribution. French Guiana: Burmeister 1844: 363 (as C. metallica  ); Soula 2002a: 135 (designation LECTOTYPE Chlorota metallica  ). “Guianas”: Ohaus 1934: 126 (as C. metallica  ); Blackwelder 1944: 239 (as C. metallica  ); Machatschke 1972: 56 (as C. metallica  ). Brazil: Burmeister 1844: 364; Ohaus 1934: 125; Blackwelder 1944: 239; Machatschke 1972: 55; Soula 2002a: 135 (designation LECTOTYPE Chlorota aulica  ), 2002b: 27.

Note 1. Soula (2002a: 135) gives Chlorota aulica  priority over C. metallica  because C. aulica  is represented by two male specimens and C. metallica  only by a female. In Soula (2005: 384) the priority is incorrectly switched because of “page priority.” The priority of C. aulica  is restored in Hielkema (2017: 6).

Note 2. Chlorota metallica  , now a synonym of C. aulica  , is described from French Guiana by Burmeister (1844: 363). According to Soula (2010a: 58), the species has not been recorded from there again, but it is common in the Brazilian Atlantic Forest. There are no reports from elsewhere in the research area. This means that the type locality French Guiana in Burmeister (1844) and the subsequent inclusion of the Guianas in the distribution of this species in Ohaus (1934: 126), Blackwelder (1944: 239), Machatschke (1972: 56) and Soula (2002a: 135) are likely the result of a mislabeled specimen. We regard this species as not occurring in the research area.
