P. thoracicus Prevett (P. coperniciae, a nomen nudum) is known from seeds of only 1 sp. of palm, Copernicia alba Morong, which is restricted to southwestern Mato Grosso in Brazil and adjacent portions of neighboring countries. The 2 specimens cited in the original description as being from Bahia were incorrectly labeled, as demonstrated from a search of pertinent documents. Records from northeastern Brazil and from other species of Copernicia are suppressed.
