Abstract

Diagnostic characters of the genus Loxaulus Mayr and a key to all fourteen species are given. Two species are newly synonymized: Compsodryoxenus humilis Weld is a new synonym of Loxaulus vaccinii (Ashmead) and Loxaulus ashmeadi Kieffer is a new synonym of Loxaulus quercusmammula (Bassett). Lecto- and paralectotypes of L. beutenmuelleri Weld, C. ferrugineus Gillette, C. quercusmammula Bassett, and C. tenuis Weld are designated. Two new species, L. huberi and L. masneri are described.
