The males of Sinanapis  can be distinguished from other male anapids by the palp with at least 3 patellar apophyses (Figs 2C, 4A, 6H, 9D), the ventrally flat bulb lacking conductor (Figs 2E, 4B, 6E, 9C), the embolus coiling around the bulb margin in at least one loop (Figs 2E, 4B, 6E, 9C), and having ventral cusps on metatarsus and tarsus I (Figs 1A, 4D, 6D). Females of Sinanapis  can be distinguished from other Chinese anapids by the globular spermathecae spaced by less than 1.5 diameters (Figs 4H, 7I, 9F), and the copulatory ducts with at least one loop (Figs 4H, 7I, 9F).

Composition.

Sinanapis crassitarsa  Wunderlich & Song, 1995 (♂), S. longituba  Lin & Li, 2012 (♂, ♀), S. medogense  sp. n. (♂, ♀), and S. wuyi  Jin & Zhang, 2013 (♂, ♀).
