Acamerobia  gen. n.

Female. Stylophore with 4–5 pairs of peritremes. Counts of setae and solenidia from palptrochanter to palptarsus: 0, 2, 1, 3 + 1 claw, 2 setae + 2 eupathidia + 1 solenidion. Idiosoma with 16 pairs of setae (vx present). Anal valves with 2 pairs of pseudanal setae. Solenidion ω on tarsi I –II situated on distal halves. Tarsi I –IV each with 1 medioventral seta. Counts of setae and solenidia of legs I –IV: coxae (excluding 1 a, 3 a and 4 a) 2 + 1 elcI, 1, 2, 2; trochanters 1, 1, 1, 1; femora 5, 4, 3, 2; genua 2 + 1 ĸ, 2 + 1 ĸ, 2, 1; tibiae 8 + 1 φ, 7 + 1 φ, 6 + 1 φ, 6 + 1 φ; tarsi 9 + 1 ω, 9 + 1 ω, 7, 7.

Type species. Acamerobia inflatus  sp. n., by present designation.

Etymology. The genus name Acamerobia  is a combination of the prefix a and the existing name, Camerobia  .

Remarks. Adult females of Acamerobia  gen. n. resemble those of Camerobia Southcott, 1957  and Bisetulobius  du Toit, Theron and Ueckermann, 1998 in having complex peritremes and solenidion ω situating on the distal half of tarsi I and II, but can be separated from them in having only two pairs of pseudanal setae and that setae vx are present. More characters for separating genera of Camerobiidae  are listed in Table 1.
