Agastoroxenia Nieves-Aldrey & Medianero, 2010

Diagnosis. This recently described genus is readily distinguished from other genera of Synergini by the presence of 13 -segmented antenna in both females and males. Additional diagnostic antennal characteristics are the pedicel being relatively long, 2.5 times as long as wide and longer than the scape and F 2, and the F 1 of the male antenna is strongly curved dorsally, excavated medially and expanded apically and basally. Other distinctive morphological features are the small basal tooth of the metatarsal claw, measuring less than 1 / 3 as long as the apical tooth and the irradiating facial striae, which are strong, broad and blunt.

Monotypic. A single species known, Agastoroxenia panamensis Nieves-Aldrey & Medianero, 2010 , described as an inquiline in unidentified Andricus galls on Quercus lancifolia SchIedl. & Cham. In Chiriquí, Piedra Candela ( Panama) (Nieves-Aldrey & Medianero 2010)
