Remarks. Bernhauer (1934) described D. excellens  in the subgenus Leptodiastemus  to differentiate between the securiform labial palpi (present in D. bruchi Bernhauer  and D. transverserugosus Bernhauer  ) and the truncate labial palpi of D. excellens  . Leptodiastemus Bernhauer  is here placed in synonymy with Xenopygus Bernhauer. However  , if the punctatus  species group is at some point removed from Xenopygus  (see Discussion below) Leptodiastemus  would be an appropriate name for these species.
