Remarks. Xenapates nigritus  is one of the most common sawfly species collected during the GTI project. It would be worthwhile to investigate in Holeta the life cycle including the description of the larvae. The adult stage of this species is characterized by a high degree of variability especially in the colouration of the legs. Furthermore, the shape of the penis valve can slightly vary, but so far it is not justified to separate different species ( Koch 1995).
