Xyleborus izuensis Murayama, 1952: 16  . syn. n.

Taxonomy: The holotype of X. quercicola  and female syntype of X. izuensis  were examined (NMNH) and were found to be conspecific. Xyleborus izuensis  is here placed in synonymy with M. quercicola  . The species has the characters of Microperus  given above for M. calamoides  , and is, therefore, transferred to that genus.
