Genus Prosoponoides Millidge & Russell-Smith, 1992  

Type species: Prosoponoides hamatum Millidge & Russell-Smith, 1992  

Diagnosis: Prosoponoides   species are very similar to Ketambea Millidge & Russell-Smith, 1992   in having a small paracymbium, filiform embolus in male palp, atrium with septum in female epigynum. The male of Prosoponoides   can be distinguished from Ketambea   by the second membrane which is situated on the lamella in Prosoponoides   , but absent in Ketambea   . Female of Prosoponoides   can be distinguished from that of Ketambea   by the highly cuticularized parmula which is absent in Ketambea   ( Figs 1–8 View FIGURE 1 View FIGURE 2 View FIGURE 3 View FIGURE 4 View FIGURE 5 View FIGURE 6 View FIGURE 7 View FIGURE 8 ) ( Li, Liu & Chen, 2018). Prosoponoides   species are also very similar to Kenocymbium Millidge & Russell-Smith, 1992   , but can be distinguished from the latter by the presence of a small paracymbium (absent in Kenocymbium   ), the tube-shaped spermathecae (unlike the spermathecae of Kenocymbium   ) ( Figs 1–8 View FIGURE 1 View FIGURE 2 View FIGURE 3 View FIGURE 4 View FIGURE 5 View FIGURE 6 View FIGURE 7 View FIGURE 8 ) ( Millidge & Russell-Smith, 1992).

Distribution: Borneo, China, Sumatra, Thailand, Vietnam.
