Numbers
There are two species of the genus listed for America north of Mexico. (1), (2)
Glenoides lenticuligera A. Blanchard, 1973
Glenoides texanaria (Hulst, 1888)
Size
Blanchard, A. 1973 listed the forewing length:
♂ 7.2-8.0 mm (average 7.7 mm).
♀ 8.0-8.8 mm. ( average 8.4 mm ).
Identification
Blanchard (1973) stated "The new species is quite close to Glenoides texanaria, the only other taxon in the genus; the pattern of maculation is nearly the same, but the transverse lines of texanaria are much better defined and its background is nearly clean of scattered brown scales and dark blotches; G. texanaria is appreciably larger; the unmistakable differences between the two species are however in the genitalia: the vesica of the male texanaria is unarmed and the postvaginal plate of its female presents an elongated sclerotization which does not exist in G. lenticuligera."
Range
Southern Texas.
Holotype ♂, Santa Ana National Wildlife Refuge, Hidalgo Co., Texas, 15 February 1971, deposited in the National Museum of Natural History.
