D. spinipes ( Murray, 1856: 396)  

( Catops   ); Reitter, 1884: 40 comb.; Portevin, 1902: 513 (as comb.), 1903a: 159 (no new data), 1921: 535; Jeannel, 1936: 153 (assignment to group); Salgado, 2010a: 301, 2010b: 152, 2016a: 63. No information about types in original description;

Syntypes (sex and number of specimens not given in Jeannel, 1936, but Portevin, 1921 refers to “cotypes”; a male aedeagus illustrated in Jeannel, 1936) in MNHN [in Jeannel, 1936].

Type locality: Caracas, [Distrito Capital, Venezuela].

= D. longispina Portevin, 1927b: 52   ; Jeannel, 1936: 153 syn. (not stated as taxonomic change).? Syntype (s) (sex and number of specimens not given in original description, or in Jeannel, 1936) in DEIC (as “Museum Dahlem”, in Jeannel, 1936). Type locality: “Yungas” (collected by “Germain”) [Note: Probably Philibert Germain, who collected around Cochabamba, Cochabamba Department, Bolivia in 1889 ( Papavero, 1971: 161). In 1889 the region was broadly called Yungas, and we can find no mention of it as a political region at that time. Cochabamba was one of the few places providing access to the Yungas in 1889. The term is still used for this ecoregion of mid elevation wet forest on the east slopes of the Andes of Bolivia.]
