status

 

Chlorota terminata (Le Peletier and Serville, 1825) 

Rutela terminata Le Peletier and Serville 1825: 317 

Note. Three presently recognized subspecies of Chlorota terminata  have been described, all of which occur in the research area.

Subspecies Chlorota terminata guyanaensis Soula, 2002 

Chlorota terminata guyanaensis Soula 2002a: 148  ( Guyana)

Distribution. Guyana: Soula 2002a: 148, 2002b: 33.

Subspecies Chlorota terminata surinamensis Ohaus, 1918 

Chlorota terminata surinamensis Ohaus 1918b: 44  ( Suriname)

= Chlorota terminata surinama Ohaus 1912: 292  ( Suriname)

Distribution. Suriname: Ohaus 1912: 292 (as Chlorota terminata surinama  ), 1918b: 44, 1934: 126; Blackwelder 1944: 240; Machatschke 1972: 56; Soula 2002a: 148; MHCN; NZCS; RMNH. French Guiana: Ohaus 1912: 292 (as Chlorota terminata surinama  ); Soula 2002a: 148, 2002b: 33, 2010a: 58 (as C. terminata  [s. l.]).

Note. According to Soula (2002a: 148), additional specimens of Chlorota terminata  from Suriname may belong to yet another subspecies.

Subspecies Chlorota terminata terminata ( Le Peletier and Serville, 1825) 

Rutela terminata Le Peletier and Serville 1825: 317  ( French Guiana - NEOTYPE)

Distribution. French Guiana: Le Peletier and Serville 1825: 317 (as Rutela terminata  ); Ohaus 1912: 293, 1934: 126; Blackwelder 1944: 239; Machatschke 1972: 56; Soula 2002a: 147 (designation NEOTYPE Rutela terminata  ), 2002b: 33, 2005: 385, 2010a: 58 (as C. terminata  [s. l.]); Brûlé et al. 2011a: 192 (as C. terminata  [s. l.]), 2014: 182 (as C. terminata  [s. l.]); Brûlé and Dalens 2012a annex 4: 18 (as C. terminata  [s. l.]), 2012b: 37 (as C. terminata  [s. l.]); Brûlé and Touroult 2013: 40 (as C. terminata  [s. l.]). Brazil (NA): Soula 2005: 385 (NA). Other: Blackwelder 1944: 239 ( Nicaragua, Panama).

Note. Although Blackwelder (1944: 239) lists nine subspecies of Chlorota terminata  described by Ohaus (1912, 1913, 1918b), he records the species s. str. not only for French Guiana but also for Nicaragua and Panama. Because we have found no other mentions of the species s. str. for Central America, we suspect that the records for that area in Blackwelder (1944) are either based on mislabeled or misidentified specimens or copied from publications older than those in which Ohaus’ new subspecies are described.
