§ Aspidolea kuntzeni Höhne, 1922 

Aspidolea kuntzeni Höhne 1922a: 87  ( Venezuela, Colombia)

Distribution. Suriname: Endrödi 1966a: 351, 1985a: 151; Moore et al. 2018b: 124. French Guiana: Duranton 2011: 17. Venezuela: Höhne 1922a: 87; Arrow 1937b: 7; Blackwelder 1944: 250; Endrödi 1966a: 351, 1985a: 151; Moore et al. 2018b: 124. Other: Höhne 1922a: 87 (Colombia); Arrow 1937b: 7 (Colombia); Blackwelder 1944: 250 (Colombia); Endrödi 1966a: 351 (Colombia, Panama, U.S.A.), 1985a: 151 (Colombia, Panama, U.S.A.); Ratcliffe 2003: 51 (Costa Rica, Panama, northern South America); Ponchel 2011 (not mentioned); Dupuis 2016b (not mentioned); Moore et al. 2018b: 124 (Colombia, Costa Rica, Panama).

Note 1. Endrödi (1966a: 351) states that the holotype of Aspidolea kuntzeni  from Suriname is in the collection of the ZMHB, but this contradicts the original description in Höhne (1922a: 87), in which this species is only recorded for Venezuela (five specimens) and Colombia (one specimen). A study of the specimens present in the ZMHB might reveal the cause of this error. Endrödi (1985a: 151) and Moore et al. (2018b: 124) repeat the erroneous record from Suriname.

Note 2. Duranton (2011: 17) notes he saw no definite specimens of Aspidolea kuntzeni  from French Guiana, and the species is not mentioned in the checklists for French Guiana by Ponchel (2011) and Dupuis (2016b). We have not seen actual specimens from Suriname, and because we are unaware of any other records from the research area, we regard it as not occurring there.

Note 3. According to Ratcliffe (2003: 51), the record of Aspidolea kuntzeni  from the U.S.A. in Endrödi (1966a: 351, 1985a: 151) is erroneous, as this species does not occur there.
