Note 1. Hielkema (2017: 4) shows that Scarabaeus festivus  (now Oxysternon (Oxysternon) festivum  ) is described in Linnaeus (1758: 350) rather than in Linnaeus (1767: 552), invalidates the lectotype designated in Edmonds and Zídek (2004: 12), and designates a new lectotype.

Note 2. According to Arnaud (2002c: 71) and Edmonds and Zídek (2004: 12), the specimens of Oxysternon festivum  from Trinidad and Tobago as mentioned in Gillet (1911b: 87) and Blackwelder (1944: 210) belong to the subspecies O. festivum nigerrimum  .
