Key to genera of Eremaeozetidae  

The following keys are to adults, without the cerotegument present.

1. Notogaster strongly convex in lateral view; notogaster waisted anteriorly in region of pteromorphs; lenticulus strongly protuberant and positioned anteriorly on notogaster; dorsosejugal suture indistinct ( Fig. 18 View FIGURE 18 )..................... Idiozetes  

- Notogaster flat or concave laterally, with centrodorsal convex region; not waisted anteriorly in region of pteromorphs; lenticulus slightly or strongly protuberant; dorsosejugal suture complete, well-defined............................... 2

2. Lamellae extremely long, extending well beyond rostrum, strongly recurved apically; tutorium prominent, projecting; setae ad 2-3 positioned close together near lateral curve of ventral plate; dorsosejugal suture transverse; bounded laterally by conical apophyses of setae c 2 positioned on reduced dorsosejugal lobes ( Fig. 11 View FIGURE 11 )................................... Retrozetes  

- Lamellae long, extending well beyond rostrum, but not strongly recurved apically; tutorium present as a thin lath, not strongly projecting; setae ad 2-3 positioned on posterior margin of anal plate; dorsosejugal suture acutely pointed medially; dorsosejugal lobes prominent, directed anteriorly....................................................................... 3

3. Notogaster with a U-shaped pre-lenticular structure, separated from lenticulus by transverse ridge of cuticle; with transverse ridge in region of lenticulus..................................................................... Mahunkaia  

- Notogaster without a U-shaped pre-lenticular structure; with transverse ridge in region of lenticulus.................... 4

4. Posterior prodorsum with median V-shaped projection; dorsosejugal suture transverse or bowed; lenticulus positioned some distance posterior of dorsosejugal suture ( Fig. 9 View FIGURE 9 )..................................................... Rogerzetes

- Posterior prodorsum without median V-shaped projection; dorsosejugal suture strongly convex, projecting anteriorly; lenticulus positioned close to apex of dorsosejugal suture ( Fig. 1 View FIGURE 1 )..................................... Eremaeozetes
