Trichopsenius sp.

North American species of Trichopsenius currently cannot be confidently identified. Reasons being the biased use of sexual characters of females and the unknown degree of unidentified species diversity. All species, including those in the Old World, are symbionts with Reticulitermes. A closely related genus, Xenistusa may be found sympatrically within a single termite nest. Local, and unless you know of a reliable site, difficult to collect.

    Microdonia kansana

This species is sympatric with M. nitidiventris in Kansas and are often confused. Compared with M. nitidiventris, M. kansana have: antennae that are more slender and antennomeres less transverse; pronotum not as impressed with lateral margins not as angulate; abdomenal dorsum covered in microsetae with tergal apical margins adorned with macrosetae that are less strong. Microdonia kansana is less frequently collected.
