Augochlora (Oxystoglossella) Eickwort, 1969 

Augochlora (Oxystoglossella) Eickwort, 1969  . Type species: Augochlora (Oxystoglossella) cordiaefloris Cockerell, 1907  , by original designation.

Augochlora (Aethechlora) Moure & Hurd, 1987  . Type species: Augochlora matucanensis Cockerell, 1914  , by monotypy.

Diagnosis. Oxystoglossella females can be separated from Augochlora  s. s. by the mandible preapical tooth small and rounded, produced far from apical tooth apex; T3 usually with abundant tiny setae reaching apical margin sublaterally; and the T5 median area covered by scale-like decumbent setae pointing towards midline. Males of Oxystoglossella are diagnosed by the premarginal setae almost reaching apical margin on T2 sublateral surfaces; and the setae on gonostylus outer lobe of ventral process longer than the inner lobe length. Additional common features of Oxystoglossella species when compared with Augochlora  s.s. are the smaller size, bluish iridescences restricted to few body parts, relative smaller punctuations on the entire body, and male light yellowish hind basitarsus (usually dark on Augochlora  s.s.).
