Phlyctaenodes Newman  

( Figures 1A View FIGURE 1 –J, 2D –G, 4A –L)

Phlyctaenodes Newman, 1840: 20   . Type species by monotypy, Phlyctaenodes pustulosa Newman, 1840   . Trachelorachys Hope, 1841: 51   . Type species by original designation, Stenochorus fumicolor Hope, 1841   (= Phlyctaenodes pustulosus Newman, 1840   ).

Demacidia Thomson, 1861: 246   . Type species by monotypy, Demacidia brunnea Thomson, 1861   (= Phlyctaenodes pustulosus Newman, 1840   ).

Description. Length 11–30 mm. Body slender, light to dark brown with shiny granules on elytra; dorsal vestiture double with dense adpressed setae and sparse bristles. Head subquadrate moderately strongly inclined; frontoclypeal suture well visible; terminal maxillary palpomere expanded in males of some species. Eyes large, coarsely facetted, distinctly emarginate, lower lobe very close to mandibular articulations. Antenna 11-segmented, filiform; antennomere 3 subequal or longer than antennomere 4. Prothorax with acute lateral projections; disc with paired nodules or pointed tubercles. Prosternal process narrow, blade-like not expanded apically. Mesocoxae distinctly separated; mesoventral process broad and meeting metaventrite. Elytra rounded or pointed apically; disc with granules bearing bristles or setae. Legs have procoxae without transverse plates; femora at most weakly clavate, rarely with reduced setose brushes; protibia simple with two apical spurs.

Remarks. Both P. pustulatus   and P. pustulosus   differ from the remaining species included here by having the prothorax with a sharp and narrow based lateral spine and paired dorsal projections. The remaining species, here treated as Phlyctaenodes   , may eventually be transferred to an existing or new genus pending the revision of the world genera of the Phlyctaenodini   .
