Xenopygus
status

 

Xenopygus sp.

Material examined. One male damaged (paramere lost) with label: “ Venezuela: Aragua, Rancho Grande , 11.VI. [19?]75, M. Mustaugh (?) col." ( FMNH).

Remarks. This species is similar to X. excellens and X. davidi but with a different median lobe (median lobe having large tooth on apex directed ventrally). However, the lack of a paramere prohibits us from describing it as new species.
