Synonyms and other taxonomic changes
Pseudexentera Heinrich, 1940 (1)
distinctive for genus
Life history data and adult capture records suggest that all species of Pseudexentera are univoltine (1)
Species level identifications in Pseudexentera based on solely on photos should in general be considered tentative. At BOLD identifications are confused for this genus with many species names applied across multiple BIN groups. Identification is best confirmed by dissection. - comment by Steve Nanz, 2022
