D. ovalis ( Kirsch, 1873: 134) 

( Choleva  ); Jeannel, 1936: 152 comb. (not stated as taxonomic change; assignment to group); Szymczakowski, 1968: 19; Salgado, 2008b: 221, 2010a: 297, 2010c: 227, 2014b: 97, 2017a: 80, 2018a: 62; Peck & Cook, 2017: 95. No information about types in original description [ Jeannel, 1936 seems not to have seen type (s), but saw specimens from the same locality in SMTD, sex and number of specimens not given].

Type locality: Peru [Pozuzu (north of Cerro de Pasco), Junín Department, in Jeannel, 1936].

Distribution: Argentina: Chaco Province; Bolivia ( dilutus  and collaris  ): Cochabamba, Coroico, and Mapiri Provinces; Ecuador: Napo (but see Note), Orellana, Pastaza, and Pichincha (also sanguinicollis  ) Provinces; Panama: Chiriquí and Darién Provinces; Peru: Cuzco ( sanguinicollis  ), Junín, Madre de Dios, and Ucayali Departments; Paraguay: Cordillera Department.

Note: The record in Salgado, 2002a: 253 ( Ecuador: Napo Province) is a probable misidentification (compare his figures to Jeannel, 1936: 144) ( Peck & Cook, 2017: 95).

= D. sanguinicollis Portevin, 1903a: 160  ; Jeannel, 1936: 152 syn. (not stated as taxonomic change). Syntypes (1 male and 1 female from Marcapata and 1 female from Santa Inès, [probably] in Grouvelle collection, in original description; a male habitus illustrated) in MNHN [in Jeannel, 1936]. Type locality (two records in original description): Marcapata, [Cuzco Department], Peru, and Santa Inès, [Pichincha Province], Ecuador [as in Hatch, 1928: 164; but Jeannel, 1936: 152 declares only the first record as “type”, and states “several specimens” (maybe in error or maybe referring to additional non-type specimens), but he also mentions the single female from Ecuador].

= D. dilutus Portevin, 1907: 70  ; Jeannel, 1936: 152 syn. (not stated as taxonomic change). Syntypes (1 male and 1 female) in MNHN (depository not given in original description; in Pic collection in Jeannel, 1936). Type locality: “ Bolivia ”.

= D. collaris Portevin, 1927b: 52  ; Jeannel, 1936: 152 syn. (not stated as taxonomic change).? Syntype (s) (sex and number of specimens not given in original description) in DEIC [in MNHN, in Jeannel, 1936, probably in error]. 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 politically defined 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.]
