§ Gromphas amazonica H. W. Bates, 1870 

Gromphas amazonicus H. W. Bates 1870: 175  ( Brazil - LECTOTYPE)

Distribution. French Guiana: Olsoufieff 1924: 59 (?). Brazil (NA): H. W. Bates 1870: 175 (as Gromphas amazonicus  ); Olsoufieff 1924: 59; Blackwelder 1944: 208; Vaz-de-Mello 2000: 193; Figueroa et al. 2012: 3; Cupello and Vaz-de-Mello 2013: 462 (designation LECTOTYPE Gromphas amazonicus  ) (NA), 2015: 946. “Amazon Basin”: Gillet 1911b: 80. Other: H. W. Bates 1870: 175 ( Peru - as Gromphas amazonicus  ); Olsoufieff 1924: 59 ( Argentina?, Peru); Figueroa et al. 2012: 3 ( Colombia, Peru); Cupello and Vaz-de-Mello 2013: 462 ( Colombia, Peru), 2015: 946 ( Colombia, Peru).

Note. The only record of Gromphas amazonica  for the Guianas that we are aware of is given in Olsoufieff (1924: 59), who mentions a specimen purportedly coming from French Guiana but casts doubt on the veracity of that origin. As Cupello and Vaz-de-Mello (2013: 462) record this species from the state of Amapá in Brazil, we regard it as potentially occurring in the Guianas.
