Rhachitopis sanguinipes Brown, 1960 

Rhachitopis sanguinipes: Brown, 1960:139  ; Dirsh, 1965: 263; Johnston, 1968:194; Naskrecki. 1992:63. figs.27–37, 77.

Type locality. Africa, Southern Africa, Cape Province, Eastern Cape Province, Langkloof Valley , 11 miles  W Kareedouw  .

Material. No material examined.

Distribution. Species has only been recorded from South Africa.

Remarks. This genus was erected by Uvarov (1922) based on its hooked male cercus, thickened hind femora, curved hind tibiae and prosternal tubercle not truncate but either triangular or with apex strongly rounded.

Dirsh (1956) reviewed the genus and found that the first descriptions of species melanopus and aphripes were poor and the types were lost so their taxonomic status or positions were not known.

Naskrecki (1992) later revised the genus and updated the key diagnostic features based on the phallic complex, cercus, supra anal plate, subgenital plate (female), coloration, morphometrical data and structure of male paraproct. The taxonomic state of this genus is satisfactory.
