B. magna Bates, 1888: 295  

B. magnus Bates   (original spelling by Bates)

B. magna Bates   (justified emendation by Blackwelder 1944: 248)

B. magnus Bates   (unjustified emendation by Frey 1976a: 110)

PANAMA: Bocas del Toro   , Canal Zone, Chiriquí, Darién; COSTA RICA

Note: Ratcliffe (2002: 26) synonymized Bolax vittatus Casey, 1915: 105   in error. Ratcliffe studied Casey’s type specimen and determined that it was congeneric with Trizogeniates foveicollis Ohaus. However   , in a “senior moment” (pers. comm. to MLJ, Oct. 2004), Casey’s name and the synonymy were misplaced in Ratcliffe’s (2002) publication. Villatoro (2002) correctly synonymized B. vittatus Casey   with T. foveicollis   (see “Note” in catalog entry for T. foveicollis   ).
