Other: Gillet 1911b: 26 (Panama - as E. velutinus  ); Balthasar 1939d: 114 (Colombia, Ecuador, Peru), 1941c: 340 (Colombia, Ecuador, Peru); Blackwelder 1944: 197 (Colombia, Ecuador, Peru - as E. hypocrita  ; Panama - as E. velutinus  ); Halffter and Halffter 1977: 49, 55 (Colombia, Ecuador, Peru - as E. hypocrita  ; Panama, Peru - as E. velutinus  ); Jessop 1985: 1101 (Ecuador, Peru - as E. velutinus  ); Medina et al. 2001: 135 (Colombia - as E. velutinus  ); Génier 2009: 134 (Bolivia, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru); Boilly 2018: 37 (Bolivia, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru).

Note 1. Jessop (1985: 1101) designated the lectotype of Eurysternus hypocrita  , but considered this name a synonym of E. velutinus H. W. Bates, 1887  ( 1887a: 39). Génier (2009: 134) restored the name. Although E. velutinus  is often mentioned for the Guianas, this species is, according to Génier (2009: 132), probably restricted to Costa Rica and Panama. Records from the research area most likely concern E. hypocrita  .

Note 2. Génier (2009: 141) notes in his “remarques” the variability within Eurysternus hypocrita  and states that it is likely a species complex with possible hybridization.
