status

 

Ceratomerus deansi Plant, 1995  

Ceratomerus paradoxus: Collin, 1933: 317–318   (misid.), nec Philippi, 1865.

Ceratomerus deansi Plant, 1995: 123–125   , figs. 1–3.

Holotype. Male ( NHMUK), Chile: Laguna Fría , Alerce [Andino] PN.  

Distribution. Argentina: Neuquén Province (Curruhué). Chile: Región de Ñuble: Diguillín Province (Las Trancas); Región de Biobío: Arauco Province (Pata de Gallina S of Contulmo); Región de La Araucanía: Malleco Province (PN Nahuelbuta); Región de Los Ríos: Valdivia Province (Oncol), Ranco Province (Las Trancas at 30 km W La Unión); Región de Los Lagos: Osorno Province (PN Puyehue—near Anticura), Llanquihue Province (Laguna Fría at PN Alerce Andino), Chiloé Province (Castro).

Remarks. Sinclair (2010: 205) cited three specimens of this species from “Pata de Gallina”, collected “ 10-25.i.1993 ”, locating this point in Atacama Region in the desert area of Chile, a record we consider as erroneous, as there are some localities with this name at different latitudes in Chile. To be accurate we need to consider the collection data given for one female of C. paraconnexus   by Sinclair (2010: 214), collected at “S. Concepcion, Laraquete, 10- 25.i.1993, P. Salinas”; the identical collection date leads us to associate the collection locality of Pata de Gallina to Arauco Province (exactly S of Contulmo), for its vicinity to Laraquete, more than in homonymous localities in Biobío (SW Los Angeles) or Concepción (6 km S Concepcion, urban area) provinces.
