Notes: Description of material from Lago de Xochimilco and Ciénaga de Lerma (Sokoloff & Caballero, 1933a), was used to establish the species Megalodiscus montezumae ( Manter, 1938) , whose validity was rejected ( Manter, 1938; Bravo-Hollis, 1941). However, Yamaguti (1971) listed it among the valid species for the genus.
