Notes

We have reexamined the type material of Tonoro multispinae González-Sponga, 2009   and confirmed its synonymy with Litoporus uncatus   . Contrary to the original description, the holotype is not  separated from the other material: 5 ♂♂, and 2 ♀♀ (?) prosomata ( not  3 ♂♂, 4 ♀♀, as in original description), MIZA 105684 (MAGS 1177), “Carapo, base del Guaiquinima”, 480 m a.s.l., 17 Feb. 1990 (L. Sanabria, M.A. González S.). The type locality is approximately at 5.73° N, 63.53° W.

Precise coordinates are also unknown for the other two previously published Venezuelan records ( Huber 2000): “upper Rio Yaciba” and “camp #3”. Both records are from Dec. 1953, suggesting that both are from the Rio Yaciba area, but we were not  able to locate this river. The published coordinates we found vary widely (e.g., 1.484° N, 66.527° W in Carico 2008; 0.833° N, 66.167° W in Carico & Silva 2010).

New record

VENEZUELA   – Bolívar • 1 ♂, CAS (9027306), Río Caura, Campamento Cecilia Magdalena [approximately 6.3° N, 64.5° W, 250 m a.s.l.], 30 Apr. 1957 (D. Robayna) GoogleMaps   .

Distribution

Widely distributed in the Amazonian basin ( Huber 2000: 302); in Venezuela   only in the states of Bolívar and Amazonas (Fig. 1041).
