Numbers
There is one named species of the genus Xystrologa in America north of Mexico.
At least 5 new species to be published soon. (Davis 2013)
Identification
"Richard Brown sent to you also the note that your recent Tineid is Xystrologa n. sp. I have saved it as 0426.6, but we will not know which of the 5-7 new Xystrologa it actually is until Don Davis publishes a revision of the genus." [Bob Patterson 3-19-13]
Range
Florida
Remarks
Dr. Davis recently corresponded with Robert Zimlich (10/23/2014), "I now have nearly all of the illustrations done for the N. American paper (~ 6 new species) but I have been busy trying to complete several other papers. As soon as these are done in about a year, I will begin to work on the Xystrologa again as well as a paper on the genus Dryadaula."
