Genus Draculoides Harvey, 1992  

Draculoides Harvey 1992: 82   ; Harvey and Humphreys, 1995: 183–184; Reddell and Cokendolpher, 1995: 69; Harvey, 2001: 171–172; Harvey, 2003: 108; Harvey et al., 2008: 176–177.

Paradraculoides Harvey, Berry, Edward & Humphreys 2008: 185   . Synonymised by Abrams et al., 2019

Type species. Draculoides   : Schizomus vinei Harvey, 1988   , by original designation.

Paradraculoides   : Paradraculoides kryptus Harvey, Berry, Edward and Humphreys, 2008   , by original designation.

Diagnosis. Pedipalpal trochanter without mesal spur. Movable cheliceral finger with 0‒2 accessory teeth. Female genitalia with or without gonopod, and with 4 anteriorly directed ducts, sometimes subdivided, and sometimes connected basally before connection with bursa. Tergite II with 2‒3 setae. Male flagellum laterally or dorsally compressed.

Description. Body with acuminate setae. Anterior process of propeltidium usually with pair of setae followed by single seta (sometimes with 3 setae in a row or with pair of setae only); corneate eyes and eye spots absent; metapeltidium divided. Pedipalp not sexually dimorphic and without armature; trochanteral mesal spur absent; male pedipalps not dimorphic. Moveable cheliceral finger with 0‒2 accessory teeth and guard tooth at end of serrula. An- terodorsal margin of femur IV produced at about 90 o angle. Abdominal tergite II with two or three macrosetae; male abdomen not elongated; male with or without small development of posterodorsal process on abdominal segment XII. Male flagellum laterally or dorsally compressed; female flagellum with three articles. Spermathecae consisting of two pairs of uniramous lobes, without nodules, gonopod present in most species, but absent in D. vinei   .

Remarks. The multi-gene molecular analysis presented by Clouse et al. (2017) recovered a monophyletic clade comprising Draculoides   + Paradraculoides   , which was sister to a variety of other Australasian taxa including Bamazomus   , Orientzomus Cokendolpher and Tsurusaki, 1994   , Ovozomus Harvey, 2001   , and some species of Apozomus   . Species of Draculoides   differ from these genera by the lack of a measl spur on the pedipalpal trochanter.
