- Dorsal idiosomal setae not as long; seta f 1 does not reach the base of h 1 .......................................... 6

5 Bothridial setae (bo) shorter than most dorsal body setae....................... caryae Khanjani & Ueckermann, 2003

- Bothridial setae (bo) longer than all dorsal body setae........................................................................ longisetosus (El Bagoury & Momen, 1988) junior homonym of longisetosus Kuznetzov & Zapaletina, 1972
