Abstract

The Ecuadorian Amazonian canopy has revealed a new genus, Callibora Cognato (type species Callibora sarahsmithae Cognato, new species). This new genus represents a presumably endemic species related to a Neotropical radiation of xyleborines belonging to the Dryocoetoides Hopkins/ Sampsonius Eggers/ Dinoxyleborus Smith species clade. A truncated elytral declivity and inflated protibae distinguish it from other Neotropical xyleborine genera.
