Monophyly: Despite being distinct among ant-like amycoids (the robust body resembles that of ants of the genus Camponotus Mayr  ), there are few well-articulated synapomorphies of this group. Possible synapomorphies are: inflation of the female palps, which have modified, spiraled asymmetrical black scales; elongation of the front legs; and male chelicerae with modified white scales. We are doubtful of the concatenated molecular results placing Titanattus  as sister to Zuniga  , as discussed above.
