Pterochthonius  Berlese, 1913, p. 104.

Berlese created Pterochthonius  as a subgenus of Cosmochthonius  , but the resemblance of the two is superficial and holds good in the number of dorsal "coupures" only. As mentioned above, Pterochthonius  must be regarded as an isolated genus. P. angelus  is the type and single representative of it.
