Overview
Oeda (Oeda) and Oeda (Oedacanthus), the two subgenera of Oeda, are easily distinguished by the structure and attachment of the inflated pronotal process (Cryan Deitz 199b). In the former subgenus this process is sessile, opaque, finely reticulate, and unarmed apically. In the latter, the process is pedunculate, translucent, not finely reticulate, and terminates in a thorn-shaped apex. See Sakakibara (2014a) for a key to the subgenera and species.
