§ Pelidnota cribrata ( Ohaus, 1913) 

Heteropelidnota cribrata Ohaus 1913: 506  ( Brazil - LECTOTYPE)

Distribution. French Guiana: Ohaus 1913: 506 (as Heteropelidnota cribrata  ), 1934: 87 (as Heteropelidnota cribrata  ); Blackwelder 1944: 238 (as Heteropelidnota cribrata  ); Machatschke 1972: 33 (as Heteropelidnota cribrata  ); Moore et al. 2017: 179. Brazil: Ohaus 1913: 506 (as Heteropelidnota cribrata  ), 1934: 87 (as Heteropelidnota cribrata  ); Machatschke 1972: 33 (as Heteropelidnota cribrata  ); Soula 2008:

16 (designation LECTOTYPE Heteropelidnota cribrata  ); Moore et al. 2017: 179. Other: Moore et al. 2017: 179 ( Colombia).

Note. Ohaus (1913: 506) describes Pelidnota cribrata  based on three specimens from French Guiana and the Brazilian state of Pará. However, Soula (2008: 37) notes that the two specimens from French Guiana actually belong to another species, which he describes as P. touroulti  . Moore et al. (2017: 179) mention this action but, for reasons unknown to us, base their inclusion of French Guiana in the distribution of P. cribrata  on these same two specimens. Because it is not known from which part of the state of Pará the only remaining known specimen of P. cribrata  is, we consider it more likely that it originates from the larger part of the state south of the Amazon than from the smaller part north of it. From this it follows that the species is not known from the research area.
