Taxonomic history

Xyleborus stenographus Schedl, 1971b: 383.

Cryptoxyleborus stenographus (Schedl): Wood and Bright, 1992: 829.


2.35−2.6 mm long (mean = 2.46 mm; n = 4); 3.0−3.33 times as long as wide. This species is distinguished by the elytral apex acuminate; two mycangial pits broad and narrow on basal slope of elytra; declivital interstriae denticulate; and antennal funicle 4-segmented.

This species most closely resembles C. turbineus and can be distinguished by the smaller size and by the elytral vestiture uniseriate on all discal interstriae (except at base).
