19 segments (♂), ♀ unknown, much like Ootacadesmus (see below), but gonopods strongly resembling those of Sholaphilus .

Type species.

Coonoorophilus monstruosus Carl, 1932, by monotypy.


This monobasic genus is retained only provisionally, because it combines the basic characters of Ootacadesmus , Kukkalodesmus , Pseudosphaeroparia and Sholaphilus . The gynandromorph ♂ holotype of Coonoorophilus monstruosus retained only a single gonopod.
