Genus Bogania Forster, 1955  

Bogania Forster, 1955   , p. 375;. Staręga 1989, p. 4.

Type species. Bogania granulata Forster, 1955   , by monotypy.

Gender. Feminine.

Diagnosis. Carapace shorter than tergal region, scutum and ocularium granulate. Ocularium removed from anterior margin of carapace. Genital operculum of male large, subtriangular, and extending anteriorly to coxae II; not enlarged in females. Legs unarmed; tarsal formula 3: 5–6: 5: 6. Male genitalia long, slender; ventral plate defined only as a distal setigerous portion of truncus; with numerous small setae and terminating in sharp or blunt process; stragulum long and tubular, stylus flagelliform and needlelike, parastylar lobe prominent; no rutrum and no pergula.

Remarks. Originally in Phalangodinae, transferred to Zalmoxidae   by Staręga (1989). The absence of a rutrum and pergula, which are the defining synapomorphies for Zalmoxidae   + Fissiphalliidae   , indicates that Bogania   should be removed from the former. Bogania   should be considered as a member of Phalangodidae   new familial assignment, based on the close similarities between the genitalic structures of Bogania   species and true phalangodids ( Cantrell, 1980).
