In our checklist of the Alticinae of Central America and Mexico (Furth and Savini, 1996), there were some species whose status or generic combination needs clarification. In preparing the 1996 checklist the authors referred to some unpublished notes of Jan Bechyne in order to understand his system of alticine names and to clarify to which genera he considered various species to belong. In almost all cases, these notes referred to published references; however, in a few cases they did not and, inadvertently, the authors listed some species in genera for the first time without fully explaining their new status or new combination. Below, we have tried to correct these as well as to clarify the status of certain species in our 1996 checklist. Also some new records have come to our attention.
