Xenormicola TS = Xenormicola proutiJames S. Miller and Andrew V. Z. Brower
- Xenormicola extensa
- Xenormicola prouti
IntroductionA rare genus occurring in the Andes from central Peru to Bolivia, represented in collections by just eight male specimens, including two additional undescribed species. Although immature stages are unknown, Miller (2009) hypothesizes an association with Chusquea (Poaceae), based on food plants of related genera.
CharacteristicsXenormicola shares several synapomorphies with Dolophrosyne and Scoturopsis, including short, porrect labial palpi and ciliate male antennae. However, the forewing discal cell is large, and the stridulatory organ is absent.
