Cyllodania Simon, 1902


Cyllodania Simon, 1902  

Type species. Cyllodania bicruciata Simon, 1902   .

Updated diagnosis. In addition to the diagnosis given by Bustamante & Ruiz (2017: 310), we included the following comparisons due the description of Cyllodania marietae   sp. nov. (see below): Cyllodania   resembles Atomosphyrus   by having a mastidion on male chelicera (common in amycoids), but differs by the presence of a distal projection on the embolus in the male palp and by having a longitudinal band of white scales on the abdomen dorsum and by having a wider femur I.
