 Comments
       
  Comment: LaBerge (page 654, 1961) listed Melissodes cajennensis (Lepeletier, 1841) as one of six names considered to be nomina dubia, stating that the "types of each have been lost or destroyed. Furthermore, the author has been unable to identify these species from the original descriptions which are too brief and without sufficient detail or figures."
