Venezuela ( EO): Halffter and Martínez 1968: 246 (as S. minutum  ) ( EO). “Amazon Basin”: Balthasar 1941c: 344 (as S. minuta ( Laporte, 1840))  . Other: Balthasar 1941c: 344 (Peru - as S. minuta ( Laporte, 1840))  ; Vulcano and Pereira 1964: 585 (Peru - as S. minutum ( Laporte, 1840))  ; Medina et al. 2001: 137 (Colombia - as S. minutum  ).

Note. Boucomont (1928a: 3) described Sinapisoma minuta  with the remark that it might be synonymous with Canthon minutus Laporte, 1840  (p. 69) from “Cayenne,” although he noted that this was based only on the color and size mentioned by Laporte. Since, according to Halffter and Martínez (1968: 246), the type of C. minutus  cannot be found and there are more small species fitting Laporte’s description, there are no grounds to make this assumption. Still, several authors ( Balthasar 1941c: 344; Vulcano and Pereira 1964: 585) have considered C. minutus  a synonym of S. minuta  . We consider C. minuta  a species inquirendum. See also the remark in Halffter and Martínez (1968).
