Diagnosis of genus. Antennae shorter than body length ( Figs 2‒3View FIGURE 2View FIGURE 3). Scales on body heavily ciliated, oval or elongated and apically rounded (rarely truncate, pointed or irregular); macAbout mac heavily ciliated apically, strongly or lightly foot-shaped or acuminate ( Figs 30 A ‒F View Figure )  . Eyes 8+8 ( Fig. 5F View Figure ). Prelabral chaetae ciliated or smooth; Labral formula with 4 (a1–2), 5 (m0–2), 5 (p0–2) smooth chaetae ( Figs 4 A View Figure , 36C View Figure )  . Labral papillae present ( Fig. 5D View Figure ). Labial palp with five main papillae (A ‒E) plus one hypostomal papilla (H) with 0, 5, 0, 4, 4, 2 guard appendages, respectively; labium with five smooth proximal chaetae (p.c.) ( Fig. 4B View Figure )  . Basolateral and basomedian labial fields with chaetae a1‒5 smooth ( Fig. 5G View Figure ). Th II‒Abd V with ms and sens formula 1, 0 | 1, 0, 1, 0, 0 and 1, 1 | 0, 2, 2, +, 3, respectively; Abd II‒IV bothriotrichial formula 2 (a5, m2), 3 (a5, m2, m5), 3 (T2, T4, D3); bothriotricha with accessory lance-shaped chaetae ( Figs 1, 11‒12View FIGURE 11, 30G‒J View Figure ). Males sometimes with robust spine-like mac on femur and tibiotarsus of leg I ( Fig. 8E View Figure ). Pretarsi with one minute smooth chaeta on anterior and posterior sides ( Fig. 8F View Figure ). Mucro falcate, without basal spine ( Figs 4C View Figure , 35F View Figure ).

Remarks. The following characters are shared by Seira  species and are notAbout not repeated in the descriptions:

AntAbout Ant I‒IV with ciliate chaetae ( Fig. 5 A ‒B View Figure ).

Four prelabral ciliate chaetae, except in S. burgersi  sp. nov. with inner smooth chaetae; labrum with chaeta a1 thicker, m0–1 and p0–1 larger, except m0 normal in S. dinizi  and S. ferrarii  ( Figs 4 A View Figure , 36C View Figure ).

Labial papilla E with lateral process (l.p.) apically acuminate and surpassing the base of the papilla E ( Fig. 4B View Figure ).

Sublobal plate with three smooth chaetae ( Figs 5E View Figure , 10D View Figure , 31D View Figure ).

Unguis inner side with two paired basal teeth, one unpaired median tooth and one unpaired apical tooth ( absent

in S. barrai  sp. nov.), outer side with two paired lateral teeth (larger in S. burgersi  sp. nov., Fig. 40H View Figure ) and one basomedian lamella apically acuminate ( Figs 8F View Figure , 21F View Figure , 25E View Figure , 29E View Figure , 34E View Figure ).
