Key to species of Eutarsopolipus from Castelnaudia

The key to species of the piratica subgroup was also published in Seeman (2019b); E. piraticus is included although its host is Trichosternus . The key is primarily to adult females although larvae are helpful for separation of some species.

1. Claw on leg I absent, unguinal setae on tarsi II-III massive, hook-like. ( piratica subgroup)........................... 2

- Claw on leg I present, unguinal setae on tarsi II-III enlarged, bifid, never hook like................................. 4
