§ Dyscinetus olivaceus Höhne, 1923 

Dyscinetus olivaceus Höhne 1923a: 252  ( Bolivia - LECTOTYPE)

Distribution. Suriname: Endrödi 1966a: 394, 1985a: 169; Moore et al. 2018b: 271. French Guiana: Duranton 2011: 18; Ponchel 2011: 60 (as D. dolivacea  [sic]); Moore et al. 2018b: 271. Brazil: Höhne 1923a: 252; Endrödi 1966a: 394, 1985a: 169; Joly and Escalona 2010: 224; Moore et al. 2018b: 271. Venezuela: Endrödi 1966a: 394, 1985a: 169; Joly and Escalona 2010: 224; Moore et al. 2018b: 271. Other: Höhne 1923a: 252 (Bolivia, Colombia); Arrow 1937b: 18 (Colombia); Blackwelder 1944: 253 (Colombia); Endrödi 1966a: 394 (Bolivia - designation LECTOTYPE Dyscinetus olivaceus  , Colombia, Peru), 1985a: 169 (Bolivia, Colombia, Peru, Trinidad and Tobago); Joly and Escalona 2010: 224 (Bolivia, Colombia); Moore et al. 2018b: 271 (Bolivia, Colombia, Peru, Trinidad and Tobago).

Note 1. Joly and Escalona (2010: 224) give details regarding two paralectotypes of Dyscinetus olivaceus  ; a male from Bolivia and a female from the state of Pará in Brazil. These are not mentioned in Endrödi (1966a), but could be correct according to the data given in Höhne (1923a: 252). We suspect that the paralectotype from the state of Pará in Brazil is mislabeled  ; see next note for explanation.

Note 2. Specimens from Suriname and French Guiana identified as Dyscinetus olivaceus  belong in fact to D. mendax  , which was recently described by Joly and Escalona (2010: 227). The true D. olivaceus  does not occur in the research area and is probably restricted to the higher altitudes of northwestern South America.
