Remarks. Although Thor (1931a) treated this species as a synonym of C. latirostris  , they have different chaetotaxy on the palpfemur (6–7 in the latter species and 4 in C. americana  ) ( Hernandes 2013); also, the proximal setae of the chelicerae is approximately three times the length of the distal setae (2x in C. latirostris  ).

68. Cyta cytoides ( Mihelčič, 1958a)  : 271 comb. nov.; in a damp cave in brown clay, Guadarrama Mountains, Cercedilla, Spain. Original designation: Bdella (Cytobdella) cytoides Mihelčič.
