Castolus lineatus Maldonado, 1976  

( Figs. 5B View FIGURE 5 , 9A View FIGURE 9 )

Remarks. At MEFLG several specimens of C. lineatus   were found, although all were identified as “ C. subinermis   ”. As shown above, C. subinermis   is a rather different Central American species, representing all specimens a misidentification. Recently, immature forms of C. lineatus   were described from Colombia ( Laiton Jiménez et al. 2018).

Distribution. This species was described from Costa Rica, Panama, and Colombia ( Maldonado 1976), although no precise localities were given in the original description from Costa Rica or Colombia. A single additional locality in Huila, Colombia, was provided by Laiton Jiménez (2018). New localities from Colombia are provided here. In addition, several records from Costa Rica, Panama, and Colombia based on photographs from iNaturalist are included given that this species can be easily identified by its dorsal coloration. Based on these records, C. lineatus   is also recorded for the first time from Ecuador, considerably extending south the distribution of this species ( Fig. 5B View FIGURE 5 ).
