Thiodina Simon, 1900


Thiodina Simon, 1900  

Type species. Attus elegans Nicolet, 1849   = Thiodina nicoleti Roewer, 1951   .

Diagnosis. Thiodina   males resemble those of Arachnomura   , Atomosphyrus   , Cyllodania   and Hyetussa   by having spine-like setae in a scattered pattern on the anterior surface of the male chelicera, but differ from those thiodinine genera (except Arachnomura   ) for including species with a strong pattern of dark/clear longitudinal stripes on the abdomen of both sexes. Thiodina   differs from Arachnomura   by having a shorter and wider embolus.
