Key to Genera of Fedrizziidae  

1. Both sexes: distal seta (av 1) on palp trochanter pilose ( Fig. 4 View FIGURE 4 a); hypostome with seta h 1 smooth ( Fig. 4 View FIGURE 4 a); exopodal patterning between CxII –III usually spotted, sometimes striped. Female: sternogynial shield coming to an apical knob posteriorly, curving outwards anteriorly ( Fig. 3 View FIGURE 3 a). Male: always with separate presternal shield (tetartosternum) bearing setae st 1 ( Fig. 13 View FIGURE 13 a); base of tritosternum same form as female.. ..................................................................................................................................................................... 2

- Both sexes: distal seta (av 1) on palp trochanter barbed, if pilose then shortly so ( Fig. 4 View FIGURE 4 b); hypostome with seta h 1 barbed or branched ( Fig. 4 View FIGURE 4 b); exopodal patterning between CxII-III striped or dark, sclerotised. Female: sternogynial shield rounded posteriorly, curving slightly inwards anteriorly ( Fig. 3 View FIGURE 3 b). Male: many species without separate seta-bearing tetartosternum ( Fig. 13 View FIGURE 13 c –f, Fig. 13 View FIGURE 13 b an exception), often with presternal processes ( Fig. 13 View FIGURE 13 d –f, 14 a –f); base of tritosternum broader and shorter than female.......................... ...................................................................................................................................................
