Listroderes Schoenherr, 1826  Fig. 34

Listroderes  Schönherr, 1823: col. 1142 (nom. nud.).

Listroderes  Schönherr, 1826: 158.

Listroderus  Erichson, 1847: 129 (lapsus).

Listoderes  Kuschel, 1990: 71 (lapsus).

Type species.

Listroderes costirostris  Schönherr, 1826 (by original designation, combined description).


Small to medium-sized (3.9-12.5 mm); vestiture of subcircular scales and setae; scrobal ventral tooth usually present.


Listroderes  is closely related to Antarctobius, Germainiellus and  the clade Methypora-Rupanius-Acrorius-Trachodema-Lamiarhinus-Philippius. The distinction between Antarctobius  , Germainiellus  and Listroderes  is not without doubt (see Morrone and Marvaldi 1998), and future analyses may determine if they are merged into a single genus.
