Udubidae Polotow & Griswold 2015 

UdubIdAE POlOtOw & GrIswOld, 2015  : 151

TypE gEnus Uduba SImOn, 1880  : 343 (TypE spEcIEs by mOnOtypy: Olios madagascariensis  VInsOn, 1863)

Diagnosis. Udubidae  are supported by several homoplastic synapomorphies (Polotow et al. 2015: fig. 6), which can be used to distinguish them from other Oval Calamistrum clade families: absence of a serrula on the movable chela of the chelicerae, tibia of male palp with ventral apophysis, oval cross section of the embolus, tarsal organ with a key-hole shaped opening ( Fig. 1EView FIGURE 1), tarsal trichobothria of equal length, male leg tibiae with crack ( Fig. 3EView FIGURE 3), uniquely textured spermathecae and elongated posterior lateral spinnerets.

Composition. Campostichomma Karsch, 1892  ; Raecius Simon, 1892  ; Uduba Simon, 1880  and Zorodictyna Strand, 1907  .

Distribution. Tropical and sub-tropical Africa, Madagascar, and Sri Lanka.

Note. Campostichomma  was not included as a terminal in the Polotow et al. (2015) analysis, but the genus presents the diagnostic morphological characters of Udubidae  . Lehtinen (1967: 318) placed Campostichomma  in his Machadoniinae  ( Miturgidae  ) along with Devendra  . The close relationship of Campostichomma and  Uduba  was first proposed by Griswold (1993), recovered by Raven & Stumkat (2005) and was discussed by Griswold (2000) as a potential case of vicariance between Madagascar and Sri Lanka.
