Diagnosis. Males (fig 7C): Progonyleptoidellus fuscopictus   can be distinguished from congeners by the following combination of characters: Scutal area III with pair of median spines; free tergites I–II unarmed; free tergite III usually unarmed (with median spines in some specimens); proapical apophysis of coxa IV long, strong, with curved apex; femur IV with DBA (sinple, acuminate, prolaterally directed), with dorsal row of spines on basal half, retrolaterally directed, decreasing in size apically; retrodorsally with row of strong and large spines, decreasing in size apically; ventrally with two rows of small spines; carapace dark black; lateral margin of DS yellowish; scutal areas I–III with black bands, but not continuous as in P. striatus   ; dry-mark on anterior part of carapace (in front of ocularium) and on DS sulci.

Females: Progonyleptoidellus fuscopictus   can be distinguished from the other species of the genus by the following combination of characters: Proapical apophysis of coxa IV strong, long, straight and acuminate; femur IV without DBA, dorsally armed like in males; retrodorsally with spines smaller than in males; proventrally with median spines (larger than males).
