Diagnosis. Individuals can be distinguished from other members of the genus by a combination of the following character states: head without median longitudinal carina; dorsal pubescence inconspicuous; eyes not pyramidal in shape. Scape in major males is rather simply curved and laterally flattened ( Fig. 9 View Figure 7-9 ). Male genitalia as in Fig. 33 View Figure 31-34 .

Type material: There is one female in BMNH, with the following label data: “Type/Grand Etang Rd. (Leeward side) Grenada, W.I. H.H. Smith 209/W. Indies 99-37/ Laemophloeus Caseyi   ty. Grouv”. Grouvelle (1898: 42) did not state the number of specimens in the type series. To fix the identity of this species, the specimen above is here designated as the lectotype of Laemophloeus caseyi   .
