Teramocerus janthinus Boheman, 1840

Material Examined. Bolivia. 1 ♂, A. Boucard, ex coll. Senna ( MZUF) .

Remarks. Mantilleri (2015a) already mentioned one male from Bolivia collected by Orbigny between Chiquitos and Mojos; this record was

considered doubtful because T. janthinus is known from the eastern regions of Brazil. The study of specimens of different species of the tribe Acratini from Senna’ s collection in MZUF, mostly coming from the well-known insect dealer Boucard, revealed several erroneous geographical data. Therefore, until a new and well-documented specimen is discovered, T. janthinus should still be considered as occurring only in eastern Brazil.
