Systematics Viette (1953) considered this genus to be closely related to Hepialiscus, but distinguished by the male genitalia with widely flared and slightly toothed genitalia. Xhoaphyrx shares the presence of a subanal sclerite with Hepialiscus and Xhoaphyrx(Ueda, 1988; Grehan, 2011). The speckled wing pattern of Xhoaphyrx is also similar to that of Parahepialiscus and some Hepialiscus species.
