Hylesinus oleae Fabricius

Adapted from Wood 1982, p. 256-283


Phloeotribus is unique among the Hylesinini in having a pseudolamellate club.


Their size varies from 1.2 to 4.0 mm in length, and their body proportions vary as well. Their color ranges from dark brown to black. The pronotum is wider than long, sometimes armed by granules. The scutellum is small. The declivity is convex and has granules. The anterior margin of the compound eye is entire. The scape is longer than the 5-segmented funicle and has long setae. The club is pseudolamellate and in some species it can give the impression of having 2 sutures. The procoxae are contiguous.
