Notes

This genus is very similar to Laccophilus Leach, 1815, with the major difference being presence of apically acute metatibial spurs in Laccoporus (apically bifid in Laccophilus). However, this character has been shown to be reversible in Laccophilus, even though rarely so (Balke et al. 1997[1]). We suspect that a study of DNA sequence data will reveal Laccoporus in a position within Laccophilus.

Type species:

Laccoporus viator Balfour-Browne, 1939: 104, by original designation.
