§ Pelidnota osculatii Guérin-Méneville, 1855 

Pelidnota osculatii Guérin-Méneville 1855: 585  ( Peru - NEOTYPE)

Distribution. Venezuela ( EO): Kirmse and Ratcliffe 2019: 153 ( EO). “Amazon Basin”: Guérin- Méneville 1855: 585. Other: Ohaus 1912: 300 (Colombia, Ecuador), 1934: 85 (Ecuador - as Pelidnota (Chalcoplethis) osculatii  ); Blackwelder 1944: 237 (Ecuador); Machatschke 1972: 31 (Ecuador - as Pelidnota (Chalcoplethis) osculatii  ); Soula 2006: 68 (Colombia - as Strigidia osculatii  ), 2010: 33 (Colombia, Ecuador, Peru - designation NEOTYPE Pelidnota osculatii  ); Moore et al. 2017: 229 (Colombia, Ecuador, Peru).

Note. Soula (2010b: 33) designates a neotype for Pelidnota osculatii  , which he states is deposited in the MNHN. Moore et al. (2017: 229) mention they found a neotype in the Soula collection in the Musée des Confluences, Lyon, France ( CCECL), but invalidate this neotype because according to them it has never been published. Given that the neotype data mentioned by Soula (2010b) are identical to those mentioned by Moore et al. (2017), it seems that it has been published but that the specimen ended up in the wrong collection. This may have been caused by Soula’s sudden death in 2012, as this could have kept him from intended actions such as sending the specimen to the MNHN.
