Dichotomius (Luederwaldtinia) lycas ( Felsche, 1901) 

Pinotus lycas Felsche 1901: 144  ( Brazil)

Distribution. “Guianas”: Gillet 1911b: 61 (as Pinotus lycas  ); Blackwelder 1944: 207 (as Pinotus lycas  ). Brazil: Felsche 1901: 144 (as Pinotus lycas  ); Blackwelder 1944: 207 (as Pinotus lycas  ); Vulcano et al. 1976: 518; Vaz-de-Mello 2000: 193.

Note. Vulcano et al. (1976: 518) state that in the original description of Dichotomius lycas  Guyana is mentioned as the collecting locality, while the label bears the location Bahia. This is incorrect, as the original description in Felsche (1901: 144) clearly mentions Brazil, not Guyana. The record in Blackwelder (1944: 207) is likely taken from Gillet (1911b: 61), which mentions “ Guyana ” without clarification as to which of the Guianas. Given the absence of any recent records, we consider the occurrence of this species in the research area doubtful and in need of confirmation.
