Dendropaemon (Rutilopaemon) refulgens Waterhouse, 1891 

Dendropemon refulgens Waterhouse 1891b: 56  ( French Guiana)

Distribution. French Guiana: Waterhouse 1891b: 56 (as Dendropemon refulgens  ); Olsoufieff 1924: 125; Blut 1939: 271; Brûlé et al. 2014: 183; Génier and Arnaud 2016: 66; Boilly et al. 2016: 94. “Guianas”: Gillet 1911b: 88 (as Dendropemon refulgens  ); Blackwelder 1944: 211 (as Dendropemon refulgens  ). Brazil: Olsoufieff 1924: 125; Vaz-de-Mello 2000: 192 (as Dendropaenon [sic] (Coprophanaeoides) refulgens  refulgens  ). Venezuela ( EO): Martínez and Clavijo 1990: 154 ( EO). Other: Medina et al. 2001: 140 (Colombia).

Note. According to Génier and Arnaud (2016: 52), the specimen of Dendropaemon refulgens  mentioned for Venezuela in Martínez and Clavijo (1990: 154) was actually a new species that they described as D. (Glaphyropaemon) inemarginatus  . Concerning the true D. refulgens, Génier and Arnaud (2016)  only studied the holotype and thus restrict its known range to the type locality French Guiana. They do not discuss the records of this species for Brazil in Olsoufieff (1924: 125) and Vaz-de-Mello (2000: 192), nor the record for Colombia in Medina et al. (2001: 140). We regard the occurrence of this species in Brazil and Colombia as in need of confirmation. Pending future results, it seems unwise to fully exclude the option that the species might occur in Venezuela, as this country is situated between French Guiana and Colombia.
