Taxonomy: The holotype of Xyleborus osumiensis  was examined at NMNH by SMS and was compared to photos of the X. metanepotulus  holotype (TARI). The two specimens were found to be conspecific. Xyleborus metanepotulus  is here placed in synonymy. The species has the generic characters of Ambrosiophilus Hulcr and Cognato, 2009, and is here transferred to that genus.
