Triaenomontia Roewer 1915: 133  ; Roewer 1923: 617 [junior subjective synonym of Triacumontia Roewer  by Lawrence (1959); type species: not designated].

Bezavonia Roewer 1949: 289  [junior subjective synonym of Acumontia Loman  by Lawrence (1959); type species: Bezavonia remyi Roewer  , by original designation].

Included species. Acumontia alluaudi ( Roewer, 1915)  , Acumontia armata Loman, 1898  , Acumontia capitata ( Lawrence, 1959)  , Acumontia cowani Pocock, 1902  , Acumontia echinata Pocock, 1903  , Acumontia flavispina ( Lawrence, 1959)  , Acumontia hispida ( Roewer, 1915)  , Acumontia horrida ( Roewer, 1915)  , Acumontia hystrix ( Lawrence, 1959)  , Acumontia longipes Lawrence, 1959  , Acumontia majori Pocock, 1902  , Acumontia milloti ( Lawrence, 1959)  , Acumontia nigra ( Lawrence, 1959)  , Acumontia pococki Roewer, 1915  , Acumontia remyi ( Roewer, 1949)  , Acumontia roberti Pocock, 1903  , Acumontia roeweri Staręga, 1992  (valid replacement name for Triacumontia pococki Roewer, 1915  ), Acumontia rostrata Pocock, 1902  , Acumontia soerenseni ( Roewer, 1915)  , Acumontia spinifrons ( Roewer, 1915)  , Acumontia succinea  sp. nov., Acumontia venator ( Roewer, 1931)  .

Diagnosis. Differs from Flavonuncia  and Hovanuncia  by the presence of spines on the abdominal scutum. Differs from Decarynella  and Paulianyx  by spines of area III being always larger than spines of dorsum of the femur of pedipalp. Differs from Millomontia  and Millotonyx  by the presence of spines or tubercles on free tergites instead of round granules. Differs from Ivohibea  by the absence of a long dorsal spine on base of femora II –IV.

Notes. Currently, there are not any diagnostic features which distinguish Antongila  from Acumontia  . The genus is monotypic and the description was probably based in a female ( Lawrence 1959: 45). According to Lawrence (1959), Antongila spinigera  is close to Acumontia flavispina  .
