Bogania neogranulata Cantrell, 1980  

Bogania neogranulata Cantrell, 1980   , p. 248–249, figs. 26, 30, 34.

Record. *The Knoll, Mt. Tamborine, Queensland, Australia, collected 11 August, 1969, by B. K. Cantrell.

Genus Bunofagea Star   ę ga, 1992

Bunofagea Lawrence, 1959   , p.: 82–83; Staręga, 1989, p. 5 [unavailable name, ICZN 13.3]; Staręga, 1992, p. 295 .. Bunofagea Staręga, 1992: 295   .

Type species. Bunofagea gracilipes Lawrence, 1959   , by original designation.

Gender. Feminine.

Diagnosis. Ocularium placed toward the anterior margin of the carapace. Proximal segment of chelicers with shallow bulla. Legs unarmed, with leg II much longer than leg IV and three times the length of the body; tarsal formula 3: 4: 5: 6. Distitarsus I with two articles, distitarsus II with three articles. Male genitalia long, slender; ventral plate defined only as a distal tapering setigerous portion of truncus; with 4 pairs of lateral and two pair of ventrodistal small acuminate setae and one very large foliaceous seta; stragulum long and tubular, with two pairs of square terminal processes, stylus flagelliform and needlelike; no rutrum and no pergula.

Remarks. Originally in Phalangodinae, transferred to Zalmoxidae   by Staręga (1992). The general appearance of this genus suggests a distant relationship to Zalmoxidae, The   penis of a paratype of Bunofagea gracilipes   has been dissected and examined by us, and it includes structures characteristic of Phalangodidae   ( Fig. 2 View FIGURE 2 ); we therefore consider Bunofagea   to be a member of Phalangodidae   new familial assignment. Furthermore, the related monotypic Madagascan genus Remyus Roewer, 1949   has been included in a molecular phylogeny and subsequently transferred to Phalangodidae   (Sharma & Giribet, in press), suggesting a similar placement for Bunofagea   .
