Diagnosis. Most closely related to Xenomerus ochraceus , differing by the complete central keel, thin basal depressions on T3 and POL/OOL. Shared with Xenomerus guinensis the thin basal depressions and elongated costae on T3 extending to middle of tergum and differs by complete central keel and dense setae on frons.

Etymology. Named after Kenzo Yamagishi, who collected some of the type material of this species.
