Miotropis: Scutellum smooth, sublateral grooves nearly always present anteriorly, usually easily traceable to posterior pair of setal sockets. Face without white markings. Mandibles not elongate. Flagellomeres not asymmetrical in males.
Grotiusomyia: Face without white markings. Mandibles not elongate. Median panels of propodeum sharply raised above supracoxal flange and lateral areas or propodeum, lateral edge of raised area with 1 seta on each side near midlength. Actually very similar to Paraolinx in some ways, such as the clypeal margin and head shape, but easily distinguished.
Aulogymnus: Face without white markings. Mandibles not elongate. Often with fewer than 4 funicular segments. Stigma elongate, with uncus separated from stigmal apex by more than its own length. Can strongly resemble some Paraolinx in color and sculpture.
Hoplocrepis: Head broad, with face strongly narrowed in ventral half. Mandibles reduced, not capable of meeting medially, without teeth. Occipital carina (often a transverse ledge) present near occipital foramen, vertex also usually sharply margined. Forewing with distinct tuft of enlarged, darkened setae near parastigma; usually with fuscate transverse stripe(s). Petiole longer than broad. Color typically semi-transparent brown to tan or amber. Sulci, carinae, and sutures usually with conspicuously sharp edges. Rarely confusable.
Dasyeulophus: Notauli incomplete. Eyes setose. Clypeal margin bilobed. All funicular segments quadrate to broader than long. Scutellum and mesoscutal midlobe with numerous irregularly distributed setae (rarely scutellum with as few as 2 pairs of setae). Dorsellum large and convex: propodeum only slightly longer than dorsellum medially. Similar in form to some strongly reduced Paraolinx.
