Neocompsa intricata Martins, 1970  

Neocompsa intricata Martins, 1970: 1088   ; Monné, 2017a: 337 (cat.).

The species was originally described from Mexico (Veracruz). Schaeffer (1905, 1908) recorded Neocompsa textilis (Thomson, 1865)   from Texas, and Linsley & Martin (1933) described N. textilis var. alacre   (written as alacris   ) also from Texas. The specimens used to record N. textilis   and N. textilis alacris   from the USA have been considered as belonging to N. intricata   . Without doubt, this supposition was based in Martins (1970) (translated): “The specimens from Brownsville, Texas, and from Hidalgo in Mexico, appear to belong to this species [ N. intricata   ]; however, the elytral apex is less projected at outer side and the erect setae of the elytra are more abundant. They will not be included in the type series.” Evidently, this is not a formal affirmation (“appear”). Thus, it is a mistake to list these specimens in the references of N. intricata   . Currently, N. textilis var. alacre   is N. alacris ( Bates, 1885)   .

According to Monné (2017a), N. intricata   is recorded from the USA (Texas)   , Mexico (San Luis Potosí, Veracruz). However, as seen before, for the time being, the species is formally excluded from the fauna of the USA   .

Material examined. MEXICO, Hidalgo: Molango (1650 m), male, 9.VII.1989, D. Curoe col. ( IMQC).
