Xenorhipis brendeli - Female
Blue Spring Conservation Area, Crawford County, Missouri, USA

Emerged 1-15.vii.2001 from dead branch Carya laciniosa coll. 28.iv.2001 by T.C.MacRae (det. T.C.MacRae).

Like other related genera, only the males exhibit modified (pectinate) antennae. Species of Xenorhipis are distinguished from related genera by their abbreviated elytra (entire in Trichinorhipis) and their subparallel metacoxal plates (triangular in Hesperorhipis). Xenorhipis brendeli is known from the eastern U.S. west to Minnesota and eastern Texas.
