D. monilis ( Murray, 1856: 395)  

( Catops   ); Reitter, 1884: 40 comb.; Portevin, 1902: 513 (as comb.), 1903a: 159 (no new data); Jeannel, 1936: 153 (assignment to group ovalis); Szymczakowski, 1961: 154 (type seen), 1969b: 410; Salgado, 2010a: 296, 2010b: 150, 2014b: 96, 2018a: 64 (assignment to group); Peck & Cook, 2017: 94. No information about types in original description;

Syntypes in MNHN [in Jeannel, 1936, sex and number of specimens not given, but referring to “specimens” in plural form; Portevin, 1921 also refers to “cotypes”; a female [not seen], in Peck & Cook, 2017].

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

Distribution: Costa Rica: Puntarenas Province; Peru: Cuzco Department; Venezuela: Distrito Capital.

Note 1: Considering the synonymic list in Jeannel, 1936: 152, it seems that the record in Portevin, 1921: 535 is a misidentification of D. curtus Portevin [1903]   ,

Note 2: The record in Salgado, 2002a: 253 ( Ecuador: Cotopaxi Province: Otonga) is a misidentification of D. sokolowski Szymczakowski [1961] ( Salgado, 2014b: 97)   .
