French Guiana: Laporte 1840: 118 (as Macraspis affinis  ); Burmeister 1844: 357 (as Macraspis prasina  ); Ohaus 1934: 142 (as P. affinis  [s. l.]); Blackwelder 1944: 240 (as P. affinis  [s. l.]); Machatschke 1972: 64 (as P. affinis  [s. l.]); Soula 2002a: 236 (designation NEOTYPE Macraspis affinis  ), 2002b: 90, 2010a: 58 (as P. affinis  [s. l.]); Brûlé et al. 2011a: 192 (as P. affinis  [s. l.]), 2014: 183 (as P. affinis  [s. l.]); Brûlé and Touroult 2013: 40 (as P. affinis  [s. l.]); MHCN; RMNH. Brazil: Blackwelder 1944: 240 (as P. affinis  [s. l.]). “Amazon Basin”: Ohaus 1934: 142 (as P. affinis  [s. l.]); Machatschke 1972: 64 (as P. affinis  [s. l.]). Other: Ohaus 1934: 142 (Bolivia, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru - as P. affinis  [s. l.]); Blackwelder 1944: 240 (Argentina, Bolivia, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru - as P. affinis  [s. l.]); Machatschke 1972: 64 (Colombia, Ecuador, Peru - as P. affinis  [s. l.]).

Note. Until 2002 there were no recognized subspecies of Pseudomacraspis affinis  , which means that all pre-2002 records are filed under the name of the species s. l. Based on the distributions of the two subspecies described by Soula (2002a: 237, 2005: 380), the nominotypical subspecies appears to be restricted to the Guianas and possibly some parts of northern Brazil and eastern Venezuela.
