Remarks. This species is only known from a single female. White (2006) noted that in terms of overall similarity this species was similar to D. binotatus Loew, 1862  , but that it had the group features of D. seguyi  , and so placed it in the Seguyi  group, then regarded as part of sg. Didacus  . However, new evidence presented here indicates that D. seguyi  should be placed in sg. Lophodacus  , and D. pusillator  is therefore moved to the Binotatus  group, pending the discovery of a male specimen from which to clarify its true affinities.
