Diagnosis

From: Snegovaya & Staręga 2008[1] A species group of Opilioninae characterized by having:

  1. Anterior part of cephalothorax with groups of denticles which may be very dense; same denticles settle down on lateral sides of cephalothorax and on each side of eye tubercle;
  2. Legs variable in length, mostly long, sometimes either short or very long;
  3. Chelicerae usually normal, sometimes enlarged in males;
  4. Palps in males with many denticles on femur and tibia, less on patella, none on tarsus (here a ventral row or elongate area of sensory granules);
  5. Penis without lateral incisions or similar structures in the apical part of the shaft; shaft often flattened dorsoventrally, particularly in distal part; glans cuneiform, in pro-file mostly triangular with rounded "lower" corner; stylus relatively long.
