Comments.

Transferred to Taphrodasus   (Wood & Bright, 1992) without discussion of characters. Webbia   synapomorphies: dorsal aspect of pronotum long and quadrangular, pronotal disc long and flat, frontal slope of pronotum short, scutellum suppressed, costate and setose elytral bases. Differs from most Webbia   spp. by densely pubescent and excavated declivity and elongated body shape. Length: 2.4 mm. Characters shared with Pseudowebbia percorthylus   [(Schedl, 1935): Hulcr and Cognato, this volume] (type species of Taphrodasus   ) limited to excavated declivity with dense setae, genus-level characters different.
