Diagnosis

Differs from all other genera of the family Anthroleucosomatidae , except the genus Heterocaucaseuma Antić & Makarov, 2016 , by the presence of two pairs of flagelliform processes originating from the base of the angiocoxites of the posterior gonopods. From the genus Heterocaucaseuma , it differs by the presence of more complicated anterior gonopods, characterized by angiocoxites clearly differentiated into anterior and posterior parts. The anterior parts are shield-like, separated, partially fused or completely fused, with a visible furrow. The genus Heterocaucaseuma is characterized by somewhat simplified anterior gonopods with angiocoxites differentiated into a medial part, fully fused, and two lateral parts.

Distribution

The genus Caucaseuma includes mainly narrow endemics confined to the Western and North Western Caucasus, with the exception of C. variabile with a rather disjunct distribution in the western, northern and central Caucasus ( Fig. 1 View Fig ).
