Malagoniella (Malagoniella) astyanax ( Olivier, 1789) 

Scarabaeus astyanax Olivier 1789: 188 

Note. Five presently recognized subspecies of Malagoniella (Malagoniella) astyanax  have been described, one of which occurs in the research area. The other four are M. (M.) astyanax columbica ( Harold, 1867)  (recorded from Colombia), M. (M.) astyanax polita Halffter et al., 1960  (recorded from Bolivia), M. (M.) astyanax punctatostriata ( Blanchard, 1846)  (recorded from Brazil, Argentina, Bolivia, Paraguay) and M. (M.) astyanax yucateca ( Harold, 1863)  (recorded from Central America, Mexico).

Subspecies Malagoniella (Malagoniella) astyanax astyanax ( Olivier, 1789) 

Scarabaeus astyanax Olivier 1789: 188  (none)

Distribution. Suriname: Gillet 1911b: 26 (as Megathopa astyanax  ); Blackwelder 1944: 198 (as Megathopa astyanax  ); Halffter et al. 1960: 202 (as Megathopa astyanax astyanax  ); Martínez 1961b: 82; Halffter and Martínez 1966: 122; MHCN. French Guiana: Halffter et al. 1960: 202 (as Megathopa astyanax astyanax  ); Martínez 1961b: 82; Halffter and Martínez 1966: 122. “Guianas”: Vulcano and Pereira 1964: 574 (as M. astyanax  s. str.). Brazil (NA): Halffter et al. 1960: 202 (as Megathopa astyanax astyanax  ); Martínez 1961b: 82; Vulcano and Pereira 1964: 574 (as M. astyanax  s. str.); Halffter and Martínez 1966: 122; Vaz-de-Mello 2000: 194; França et al. 2016: 2 (as M. astyanax  [s. l.]) (NA). Venezuela ( EO): Martínez 1961b: 82; Vulcano and Pereira 1964: 574 (as M. astyanax  s. str.); Halffter and Martínez 1966: 122 (?); Ferrer-Paris et al. 2013: 109 (as M. astyanax  [s. l.]) ( EO). Other: Martínez 1961b: 82 (Colombia); Medina et al. 2001: 137 (Colombia - as M. astyanax  [s. l.]).

Note. In Vulcano and Pereira (1964: 574) the distributions for Malagoniella astyanax  s. l. and for its non-nominotypical subspecies are given, but not those for the species s. str. In the present checklist, we have deduced the locations for the species s. str. by subtracting the distributions of the other subspecies from the species s. l., but this may well be an oversimplification of the actual situation.
