Remarks.

The complete distribution of C. multiplex  is unknown due to this species' historical confusion with C. amazona amazona  . The locality records from recent monographs are given here as these are based on authoritatively identified specimens ( Ratcliffe 2003, Ratcliffe and Cave 2006, Ratcliffe et al. 2013). Cyclocephala detecta  was described from specimens collected in Mexico and Nicaragua, and this species is currently considered a synonym of C. amazona  . Based on these reported locality data, it is possible that C. multiplex  is a junior synonym of C. detecta  .
