There are eighteen species in this myrmecophilous genus of Histeridae. The species of Chlamydonia all possess frontal tubercles, in two parallel, longitudinal series, median and lateral paired protuberances at the anterior pronotal margin, epipleural marginal stria doubled above the metathoracic leg, and humeral trichomes that are more or less elongate in orientation. This newly described genus is characterised in greater detail by Caterino (2006).
