Genus Calbodus Spinola, 1852
Genus Caldobus Spinola, 1852: 261.
Distribution: Two species are known from Argentina and Chile
Type species: Calbodus pallidulus Spinola, 1852.
There are two recognized species in this genus:
Calbodus pallidulus Spinola, 1852: 262 - Chile, Argentina
Calbodus patquianus Fennah, 1965: 251 - Argenitna
Hosts: None reported. Calbodus pallidulus was reported by Fennah (1965) from grasslands, forest edge scrub, and in Nothofagus forest.
Economic Importance: Limited.
Fennah (1965) notes: "...This genus is very close to Eurysa, but at present can be separated by the relatively longer rostrum, of which the apical segment surpasses the mesotrochanters, and by the post-tibial spur, which, though relatively solid, bears a row of even teeth along the margin. The frons is relatively more elongate than in species of Eurysa, and the carinae are moderately distinct at the junction of vertex and frons."
Calbodus bears only a passing resemblance to Eurysa and is not closely related.
