Ataenius purator Harold, 1868 

Ataenius purator Harold 1868e: 85  ( Brazil - LECTOTYPE)

= Ataenius splendens Endrödi 1962: 52  ( Suriname)

Distribution. Guyana: Stebnicka and Lago 2005: 66; Stebnicka 2007b: 38. Suriname: Endrödi 1962: 52 (as Ataenius splendens  ); Stebnicka 1998b: 202, 2007b: 38. French Guiana: Stebnicka and Lago 2005: 66. Brazil: Harold 1868e: 85; A. Schmidt 1910b: 77, 1922b: 432; Blackwelder 1944: 215; Stebnicka 1998b: 202 (designation LECTOTYPE Ataenius purator  ), 2007b: 38; Stebnicka and Lago 2005: 66. Venezuela ( EO): Stebnicka 1998b: 202, 2007b: 38; Stebnicka and Lago 2005: 66 ( EO). Other: Stebnicka 1998b: 202 (Argentina, Paraguay, Uruguay), 2007b: 38 (Argentina, Bolivia, Paraguay, Uruguay); Stebnicka and Lago 2005: 66 (Argentina, Bolivia, Paraguay, Uruguay).

Note. Stebnicka and Lago (2005: 66) give a record of Ataenius purator  with precise location for Guyana in the text, but no records for French Guiana. However, there are no dots on the map indicating its presence in Guyana, while three dots suggest records from French Guiana. The distributional data in Stebnicka (2007: 38) are copied from the former publication. Based on the text in Stebnicka and Lago (2005), we assume this species does occur in Guyana, while its presence in French Guiana remains to be confirmed.
