Fraudatrix and Truncaudum are very similar to small Cyclorhipidion species and can be distinguished by the type 2 antennalclub. Tricosa is also similar to small Cyclorhipidion and can be distinguished by the distinctly triangular protibiae.
Some species of Cyclorhipidion have a strong host preference for trees of the family Fagaceae. These species occur especially in areas where this family is abundant in the forests (Beaver et al. 2014).
