Insight strikes after reading http://mono.1490590.n4.nabble.com/Obtaining-a-generic-MonoMethod-td1497087.html
I am calling the method on an instantiated (or inflated) instance of a generic class.
So I need to include the actual object type in the signature in place of the generic parameter TEntity

- (void)addObject:(DBMonoObjectRepresentation *)object
    NSString *inflatedMethodName = [NSString stringWithFormat:@"AddObject(%s)", [[object class] monoClassName]];
    DBMonoMethodRepresentation *methodRep = [DBMonoMethodRepresentation
                                             representationWithMonoMethodNamed:[inflatedMethodName UTF8String]];
    [self invokeMethodRepresentation:methodRep withNumArgs:1, [object monoObject]];

My mistake as the following:

I have generic method detection code that automatically inflates generic methods with actual types.
However, the above is not a generic method (correct me if I am wrong please!) as it is not declared with type parameters like so:  void Swap<T>(ref T lhs, ref T rhs) 
And IsGenericMethod does indeed return false for the above method.
