CYCLOCEPHALINI Laporte, 1840 

Synopsis. Endrödi 1966a, 1967b

Key. Moore et al. 2018a (genera)

Catalog and bibliography. Moore et al. 2018b

Note. Moore et al. (2018b) list two species of the tribe Cyclocephalini  for the Guianas that we regard as not occurring in the research area and which have, to our knowledge, also not been reported for any place close to the research area. For each of these species, Moore et al. (2018b) only cite Gruner (1971) as a source for the Guianas. These species are:

Cyclocephala confusa Endrödi, 1966a  (p. 174), which is mentioned in Moore et al. (2018b: 163) and copied from Gruner (1971: 845), who lists it for French Guiana. Given that this species seems otherwise restricted to Central America and northwestern South America, the specimen on which this record is based is likely misidentified in Gruner (1971);

Erioscelis emarginata ( Mannerheim, 1829)  (p. 54), which is mentioned in Moore et al. (2018b: 276) and copied from Gruner (1971: 846), who lists it for French Guiana. This species has otherwise never been recorded from the research area and it seems likely that the specimen recorded by Gruner (1971) was misidentified.

We have not included these two species in the species accounts.
