Deltochilum (Hybomidium) guildingii ( Westwood, 1835) 

Hyboma guildingii Westwood 1835: 372  (Equatorial America - see González-Alvarado and Vaz-de-Mello (2014: 451))

= Hyboma chalcea Buquet 1844: 19  (none - LECTOTYPE) - González-Alvarado and Vaz-de-Mello 2014: 451 (syn. nov.)

Distribution. Suriname: González-Alvarado and Vaz-de-Mello 2014: 451; MHCN; RMNH. Brazil (NA): González-Alvarado and Vaz-de-Mello 2014: 451 (NA). Venezuela ( EO): González-Alvarado and Vaz-de-Mello 2014: 451 ( EO). Other: Westwood 1835: 372 (none - as Hyboma guildingii  ); Buquet 1844: 19 (Colombia as Hyboma chalcea  ); Gillet 1911b: 35 (Colombia - as D. chalceum  ; not mentioned - as D. guildingii  ); Blackwelder 1944: 202 (Colombia - as D. chalceum  ; not mentioned - as D. guildingii  ); Medina et al. 2001: 136 (Colombia - as D. orbignyi  ); González-Alvarado and Vaz-de-Mello 2014: 451 (Colombia, Panama, Trinidad and Tobago - as Deltochilum (Hybomidium) guildingii  ; none - designation LECTOTYPE Hyboma chalcea  ).

Note 1. Paulian (1938: 262) considered Hyboma chalcea  a synonym of Deltochilum orbignyi  , while Vulcano and Pereira (1964: 649) considered H. guildingii  a synonym of D. icarus  . These synonymizations are discussed and invalidated in González-Alvarado and Vaz-de-Mello (2014: 449, 454).

Note 2. The records of Deltochilum gibbosum  from Guyana and Venezuela east of the Orinoco in, respectively, Forsyth and Gill (1993: 70) and Ferrer-Paris et al. (2013: 109) are probably attributable to misidentifications. D. gibbosum  is a species from North America, and the species D. densepunctatum  , D. sublaeve  and D. panamensis  , which for some time were considered subspecies of D. gibbosum  , appear to be confined to Mexico ( D. densepunctatum  and D. sublaeve  ) and Costa Rica, Colombia, Ecuador, Panama and Peru ( D. panamensis  ). The material mentioned in Forsyth and Gill (1993) and Ferrer-Paris et al. (2013) probably belongs to D. guildingii  , but as we cannot confirm this, we have not included these records here.

Note 3. According to González-Alvarado and Vaz-de-Mello (2014: 454), the record of Deltochilum orbignyi  for Colombia in Medina et al. (2001: 136) concerns in fact D. guildingii  . Several more authors ( Paulian 1938: 262; Vulcano and Pereira 1964: 650; Noriega et al. 2007: 82) have mentioned D. orbignyi  (now D. orbignyi orbignyi  ) for the Guianas and/or Colombia, but according to González-Alvarado and Vaz-de- Mello (2014: 448) this subspecies is restricted to Argentina and Bolivia. As we are unable to examine the relevant specimens to confirm our assumption that they too belong to D. guildingii  , we have not included them here. See also under D. orbignyi  .
