Taxonomy

Schedlia Browne, 1950b: 641.

Diagnosis

Schedlia are large, stout species (4.20−5.30 mm long; 2.15−2.50 times as long as wide). They can be distinguished by the scutellum absent; elytral disc minutely rugose and punctateelytral declivity clearly distinct from disc, obliquely truncate, impunctate, coarsely granulate to tuberculate; elytral bases costate, curved, with conspicuous medial tufts of setae denoting an elytral mycangium; antennal club type 4, pubescent; protibiae sickle-like, inflated, and granulate on posterior face; and contiguous procoxae.

May be confused with

Coptodryas and Ambrosiodmus. Schedlia can be distinguished from Ambrosiodmus by the lack of a scutellum and from Coptodryas by the declivity clearly separated from disc.

Distribution

Paleotropical

Gallery system

The unbranched radial entrance tunnel leads to a single large brood chamber in the longitudinal plane (Browne 1961b).

Remarks

Schedlia species are Dipterocarpaceae specialists.
