§ Deltochilum (Calhyboma) mexicanum Burmeister, 1848 

Deltochilum mexicanum Burmeister 1848: 135 

Distribution. “Guianas”: Vulcano and Pereira 1967: 556; González et al. 2009: 258. Brazil: Vulcano and Pereira 1964: 644, 1967: 556; González et al. 2009: 258. Other: Burmeister 1848: 135 (Mexico); Gillet 1911b: 36 (Costa Rica, Mexico, Panama); Paulian 1939: 18 (Bolivia, Colombia, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Mexico, Panama, Peru - as D. (Eudactylides) mexicanum  ); Balthasar 1941c: 345 (Bolivia, Colombia, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Mexico, Peru - as D. (Eudactylides) mexicanum  ); Blackwelder 1944: 203 (Costa Rica, Mexico, Panama); Pereira and Andretta 1955: 44 (Bolivia, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Honduras, Panama); Vulcano and Pereira 1964: 644 (Bolivia, Central America, Ecuador, Mexico), 1967: 556 (Bolivia, Central America, Colombia, Mexico); Medina et al. 2001: 136 (Colombia); González et al. 2009: 258 (Bolivia, Colombia, Costa Rica, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Panama, Peru).

Note. Except for the reports in Vulcano and Pereira (1967: 556) and González et al. (2009: 258) (the latter of which copied from the former), we are not aware of any records of Deltochilum mexicanum  from the research area. Given its known distribution, we assume this species does not occur in the Guianas and suspect the report by Vulcano and Pereira (1967) to be based on a mislabeling or misidentification.
