Remarks

we consider as Trigona fulviventris Guérin the specimens from Mexico to Western Ecuador. There are also undescribed species this group, from South America, besides Trigona guianae Cockerell and Trigona braueri Friese, which were erroneously recorded in the literature as Trigona fulviventris Guérin

Distribution

Nearctic Region: Mexico (Campeche, Chiapas, Colima, Guerrero, Jalisco, Michoacán de Ocampo, Nayarit, Oaxaca, Quintana Roo, Tabasco, Veracruz-Llave, Yucatán); Neotropical Region: Belize (Belize, Corozal); Colombia (Boyaca, Cauca, Cundinamarca, Magdalena, Valle del Cauca); Costa Rica (Alajuela, Cartago, Guanacaste, Limón, Puntarenas, San José); El Salvador (Sonsonate); Guatemala (Alta Verapaz, Chimaltenango, Chiquimula, Guatemala, Izabal, Quezaltenango, Zacapa); Honduras (Atlántida, Colón, Francisco Morazán, Valle, Yoro); Nicaragua (Carazo, Chontales, Managua); Panama (Chiriquí, Coclé, Colón, Darién, Panamá, Veraguas); Panama Canal Zone
