Astaenomoechus setulosus ( Harold, 1874) 

Acanthocerus setulosus Harold 1874b: 32  ( Venezuela)

Distribution. French Guiana: Paulian 1982: 105 (?); Howden and Gill 2000: 323; Ocampo and Ballerio 2006: 182; Ballerio 2014: 83. Venezuela: Paulian 1982: 105; Howden and Gill 2000: 323; Ocampo and Ballerio 2006: 182. Other: Harold 1874b: 32 (“Columbien” - as Acanthocerus setulosus  ); Arrow 1912: 49 (Colombia - as Acanthocerus setulosus  ); Blackwelder 1944: 218 (Colombia - as Acanthocerus setulosus  ); Howden and Gill 2000: 323 (Colombia); Ocampo and Ballerio 2006: 182 (Colombia).

Note. Paulian (1982: 105) states that the holotype of Astaenomoechus setulosus  was collected by Dr. Moritz in 1858 in Venezuela. However, he also mentions that the type is from Colombia. Harold clearly writes “Columbien.” In 1830, what was then Gran Colombia was split into several countries, including Colombia and Venezuela. We assume that Paulian had access to the original labels of the holotype and found detailed information which is not reproduced in either Harold (1874b) or Paulian (1982). We therefore adopt Paulian’s vision of Venezuela as the origin of the holotype.
