Dyscinetus fimosus ( Herbst, 1789) 

Scarabaeus fimosus Herbst 1789: 248  ( Suriname)

Distribution. Suriname: Herbst 1789: 248 (as Scarabaeus fimosus  ); Moore et al. 2018b: 267. “Guianas”: Arrow 1937b: 17; Blackwelder 1944: 253. Venezuela: Roze 1955: 58; Moore et al. 2018b: 267. Other: Endrödi 1966a: 389 (none); Endrödi 1985a (not mentioned).

Note. Herbst (1789: 248) mentions in the description of his Scarabaeus fimosus  that the species is said to be common in Suriname, which he considers curious as he has not seen it before, even though he has seen many insects from Suriname. Endrödi (1966a: 389) mentions that the species is unknown to him and that the type could not be found. Moore et al. (2018b: 267) mention the species for Venezuela, based on records in Roze (1955: 58), but the species is not mentioned in the synopsis of the genus in Venezuela by Joly and Escalona (2010). The two specimens recorded by Roze are supposed to be in two different museums in Caracas, Venezuela. Without types and without being able to confirm the identification of Roze’s specimens, this species remains a species inquirendum.
