Key to the genera of Afrotropical Euophryinae  (males only)

1. Retromarginal tooth of chelicera with multiple cusps (e.g. Fig. 3View FIGURES 1–6)................................................ 2

- Retromarginal tooth of chelicera with one or two cusps (e.g. Figs 8View FIGURES 7–12, 19View FIGURES 18–28).......................................... 3

2. Several teeth on promargin of chelicerae ( Fig. 3View FIGURES 1–6)..................................................... Chinophrys 

- Two teeth on promargin of chelicerae............................................. Lophostica  [Mascarene Islands]

3. Body short and stout, abdomen rounded, as long as wide ( Fig. 250View FIGURES 250–256)..................................... Yimbulunga 

- Other body proportions, abdomen oval, longer than wide...................................................... 4

4. Third leg longer than others, with very dense and long hairs on distal segments... Saitis  [African species probably misplaced]

- Third leg not longest, without such modified hairs............................................................ 5

5. Embolus with accompanying free terminal apophysis, appearing as two adjacent structures ( Figs 109View FIGURES 107–112, 150View FIGURES 146–153)....... Rumburak 

- Embolus without accompanying terminal apophysis, clearly a single structure, but sometimes with lobes or denticles along its margins............................................................................................. 6

6. Tibial apophysis absent, tiny spiders <2 mm in length ( Figs 157View FIGURES 154–160, 166View FIGURES 161–169)...................................... Tanzania 

- Tibial apophysis present, larger spiders> 2 mm in length....................................................... 7

7. Medium sized to large spiders (4–11 mm), carapace quite high, evenly high in anterior half ( Fig. 226View FIGURES 225–228); embolic spiral large, its diameter larger than half width of bulb, placed parallel to long axis of bulb; tibial apophysis always visible in ventral view of palp......................................................................................... Thyenula 

- Small to medium sized spiders (2,5– 5 mm), carapace usually somewhat flattened, sometimes slightly elevated from anterior eyes to midpoint of carapace ( Fig. 91View FIGURES 90–95); embolic spiral smaller, its diameter less than half width of bulb, placed perpendicular or obliquely to long axis of bulb; if spiral large and placed parallel, then tibial apophysis not visible in ventral view of palp.................................................................................................. Euophrys
