Taxonomy

Stictodex Hulcr and Cognato, 2013: 123.

Diagnosis

 Moderately sized, 2.4−3.3 mm long, elongate, 2.54−2.89 times as long as wide, and shining species. Stictodex can be distinguished by the antennal club very broad, type 2 (obliquely truncate), with segment 1 straight, elytral declivity with first and second interstriae divergent, broadest at elytral summit, declivity flat and gradually sloped, scutellum flat, flush with elytra; protibiae inflated on posterior face and procoxae contiguous. Stictodex is similar to Arixyleborus with which it shares a broad antennal club but it lacks the distinctive elytral ridges and furrows.
