TRIBE ONCIDERINI  

Hypsioma grisea (Fleutiaux and Sallé)   1890: 469 ( Hypomia   ); Gahan 1895: 125; Villiers 1980d: 466, 1980e: 549, 1980f: 87 (lectotype) ( Tritania   ); Monné and Hovore 2005: 204; Chalumeau and Touroult 2005a: 154; Vitali and Touroult 2005: 72 (larva); Dalens and Touroult 2007: 292; Touroult 2007: 8. = Hypsioma picticornis Bates 1865: 111   ; Gahan 1895: 125 of Grenada. Distribution. Barbados, Dominica, Grenada, Guadeloupe, Martinique, St. Lucia, St. Vincent, Union   ; Lesser Antilles endemic. Notes. Host trees: Piscidia   , Lonchocarpus   , Mangifera   .

Oncideres amputator (Fabricius)   1792: 276 ( Lamia   ); Fleutiaux and Sallé 1890: 470; Gahan 1895: 125; Villiers 1980d: 466, 1980e: 547; Chalumeau and Touroult 2005a: 151; Vitali and Touroult 2005: 74 (larva); Touroult 2007: 8. Distribution. Dominica, Grenada, Guadeloupe, Jamaica, Les Saintes, Martinique, St. Lucia, St. Vincent   ; Lesser Antilles endemic. Notes. The female of this beetle lays its eggs in a small tree branch and then girdles the branch with its mandibles until the branch drops to the forest floor. The larva develops in the fallen branch. Host trees are: “bois doux” ( Inga sp.   , with a diameter up to 20 mm), Coccoloba   , Lonchocarpus   , Diospyros   , Acacia   , Sloanea   , Citrus   , etc. The people of Dominica and St. Lucia   commonly and mistakenly think these fallen branches are the act of the large hercules beetle ( Dynastes hercules (Linnaeus)   , Scarabaeidae   ), which supposedly grasps the branches between its two horns and flies in loops until the branch is cut.

Distribution. Antigua, Bahamas, Barbados, Bequia, Cuba, Dominica, Grand Cayman, Guana, Grenada, Guadeloupe, Hispaniola, Jamaica, Martinique, Mustique, St. Croix, St. Lucia, St. Thomas, St. Vincent, Union.   The subspecies L. a. guadeloupensis Dillon 1957: 150   is reported in Puerto Rico, St. Barthélémy, Guadeloupe, St. Eustatius   , St. Martin; St. John. The subspecies L. a. insulorum Dillon 1957: 150 is distributed on various other islands of the Lesser Antilles. Five other subspecies are elsewhere in the West Indies ( Aruba, Bonaire, Curaçao), USA (FL), Mexico to Panama, and northern South America   ; widespread New World. Introduced to Tahiti and Hawaii. Notes. Polyphagous on many tree genera, especially in dry zones. The emergence holes of adult beetles from the tree are through large, conspicuous, circular “trap-doors” cut through the bark of the host tree, which are sometimes still attached to the tree. The holes under the bark are feeding chambers and pupation takes place deeper in the tree.
