§ Dendropaemon (Crassipaemon) lydiae Génier and Arnaud, 2016 

Dendropaemon (Onthoecus) lydiae Génier and Arnaud 2016: 59  View Cited Treatment ( Brazil)

Distribution. Brazil (NA): Génier and Arnaud 2016: 59 (as Dendropaemon (Onthoecus) lydiae  ) (NA).

Note. Concerning the location, the labels of the holotype of Dendropaemon lydiae  indicate only “Cameta” and “Amazon,” to which the coordinates “(6°10′S, 64°14′W)” were added in Génier and Arnaud (2016: 59). However, those coordinates appear to have been copied from Google Earth, where they point to an otherwise featureless part of the forest labeled “Cametá.” There is no other location with that name in the state of Amazonas, but there is a small city bearing that name in the state of Pará. Although this city is situated along the Rio Tocantins, which technically is not part of the Amazon Basin, it is well possible that the apparent collector, M. de Mathan, who collected extensively in Brazil in the late 19 th and early 20 th century, had used the name “Amazon” to indicate the larger region. This was not unusual at the time, especially because the country name was, like here, often omitted. According to F. Génier (pers. comm. 2016), there is indeed some room for doubt and the actual origin of the holotype might in fact be Cametá in the state of Pará.
