Brachytydeus Thor, 1931 

Brachytydeus Thor 1931: 102  .

Raphitydeus Thor 1933: 54 sensu André 2005  . Lorryia Oudemans 1925  : sensu Kaźmierski 1989 b, 1996.

Type species: Tydeus cruciatus Koch sensu André (2005)  .

Remarks. André (2005) synonymized Lorryia Oudemans  and Raphitydeus Thor  with Brachytydeus Thor  and designated Tydeus cruciatus Koch  as its type species, except for Lorryia superba Oudemans  , which he retained in the genus Lorryia  based on the presence of a single claw on the leg tarsi. The species currently assigned to the genus Lorryia  by Kaźmierski (1989 b, 1998 b) display the same chaetotaxy as T. cruciatus  . Presently, more than 200 species are known in this genus. The genus was characterized by having opisthosoma with 10 pairs of setae (ps included); leg setal counts (with solenidia in parentheses): Leg I: 8 (1 ω)- 3 - 3 - 3 - 1; Leg II: 6 (1 ω)- 2 - 2-3 -0; Leg III: 5 - 2 - 1-2 - 1; Leg IV: 5 - 2 - 1 - 1 -0.
