Genus: Xeroheriades Griswold, 1986
Common name: none
Xeroheriades contains one species, X. micheneri, which is restricted to the U.S. (Michener 2007).
(modified from Griswold 1986b unless otherwise stated)
Both Heriades and Chelostoma have similar slim profiles to Xeroheriades, but neither of them possesses the reddish abdominal coloration of Xeroheriades (Griswold 1986b), and both have simple sterna in the female without the modifications to S1 and S6.
There are no known invasives.
Floral associations are unknown.
Xeroheriades micheneri is found in isolated mountainous areas of the eastern and southern Mojave Desert in southern California (Griswold 1986; Michener 2007).
