Platynodes westermanniKipling Will
One species from Africa. The literature seems unclear about the relationship of this species and Megamorio. Specimens in museum collections are of a wide size range and vary in ways that suggest that there may be a number of undescribed species.
Easily recognized by flat body-form, the broadly expanded apex of the prosternal process, very large and prominent temples, non-carinate elytral interval 8 and rounded- or sub-carinate elytral interval 7.
