Bright (2019) treated Trischidias Hopkins, 1911   as a junior synonym of Hypothenemus Westwood, 1834   , because the characters used to separate the two genera were inconsistent and overlapped. In general, we have no argument with this position based on morphology and Johnson et al. (2020) provide molecular data from two species formerly assigned to Trischidias   that support the synonymy. However, species included in Trischidias   form a compact group which differ from most other New World species of Hypothenemus   . Specifically, they have a robust, compact body shape, and uniseriate, erect setae on the interstriae without any confused ground vestiture. The holotype of Ptilopodius novateutonicus (NMW)   was examined by the first author and clearly belongs in this group, not with other species of Hypothenemus   as treated by Wood (2007).
