Eatoniana Cambridge, 1898 

Abalakeus Southcott, 1994  , syn. nov.

Type species. Eatonia scopulifera Cambridge, 1897  , by subsequent designation ( Southcott 1961) [the information given by Southcott (1961: 486) who stated that E. scopulifera  was the type species “by original designation” is erroneous, since Cambridge (1897) did not specify the type species, and thus Southcott becomes the type species designator]

Diagnosis. Adult and deutonymph (after Southcott 1961, updated). Two eyes on each side of prodorsum. Crista metopica composed of two sensillary areas connected by a rod. Dorsal idiosomal setae (pDS) uniform, relatively robust, leaf-like when flattened or pDS club-shaped ( E. clavigera  only, see Discussion) and of variable length. Smooth, spine-like setae (different to conalae) may be present along ventral line of palp tibia. Distinctly elongate, plume-like setae arise at genu and tibia or tibia of leg IV, or setae on leg IV similar to those covering other leg segments ( E. lorestanicus  only). See also Figures 2–20View FIGURES 1 – 2. 1View FIGURES 3 – 6View FIGURES 7 – 8View FIGURES 9 – 18View FIGURES 19 – 22 ( E. plumipes  ) and 29–34 ( Eatoniana  sp.).

Larva (after Southcott 1994, updated). Two eyes on each side of prodorsum. Scutum circular to oval in outline, with two pairs of trichobothria and two pairs of non-sensillary setae. Palp femur and palp genu, each with one seta. Odontus bifurcate at termination. Tarsi I-III terminated with paired claws and claw-like empodium. ƒ n Cx = 1 - 1 - 1, ƒ n bFe = 2 - 2 - 1, ƒ n tFe = 5 (optionally + 1 ρ)- 5 - 5. See also Figures 21–28View FIGURES 19 – 22View FIGURES 23 – 24View FIGURES 25 – 28 ( E. plumipes  ).

Distribution. Palaearctic ( Algeria, Armenia, China, Egypt, France, Greece, Iran, Great Britain, Spain, Switzerland, Tunisia, Turkey –new and Turkmenistan); African ( Mauritania, Niger, South Africa) and Neotropical ( Argentina) regions.
