Types.

Invalid neotype ♂ of C. gregaria  at HNHM ( Endrődi Collection) ( Endrődi 1966). Endrődi (1966) did not examine the type of C. gregaria pallida  , and it may be at BMNH.

Remarks.

Heyne and Taschenberg (1907) briefly described an in litt. specimen of C. gregaria  from Steinheil’s collection. Arrow (1911) published a longer description and designated types for C. gregaria  that were sent to him from insect specimen dealers Otto Staudinger and Andreas Bang-Haas. Cyclocephala gregaria  Arrow could be considered a homonym and synonym of C. gregaria  Heyne & Taschenberg. Endrődi (1966) could not locate the type of C. gregaria  and designated an invalid neotype. Endrődi (1966, 1985a) reported C. gregaria  Heyne & Taschenberg from Boquete ( Chiriquí, Panama). Ratcliffe (2003) considers this record as likely erroneous and probably based on misidentified specimens of C. conspicua  Sharp. Arrow (1911) described C. gregaria var. pallida  . However, Arrow (1911) did not discuss or name subspecies, meaning that C. gregaria var. pallida  is ambiguously infrasubspecific and should be treated as a subspecies at original description.
