Remarks. Tachygerris opacus  is found mainly west of the Andes, from Belize to Ecuador ( Pacheco-Chaves et al. 2018), with more scarce reports from the Amazon (e.g., Kuitert 1942; Nieser 1970; Morales & Molano 2009). It has been recorded a few times from Panama, including the provinces of Chiriquí ( Champion 1898) and Panama ( Champion 1898; Torre-Bueno 1926; Kuitert 1942; Calabrese & Tallerico 1987; Damgaard et al. 2014). We report here the occurrence of the species in Colón Province for the first time.
