Multumbo Roewer, 1927  

Multumbo   (type species Multumbo terrenus Roewer, 1927   , by monotypy); see Kury (2003) for synonymy. Remarks. Originally placed in Cranainae ( Gonyleptidae   ); transferred to Gonyleptinae ( Gonyleptidae   ) by Kury (1992). Hereby transferred to Hernandariinae.

Diagnosis. Multumbo   can be distinguished from the other genera of Hernandariinae by having the central pair of apophyses of anterior margin separated, smaller than the pair of apophyses of corners, tarsus I 6 -segmented, and granules of mesotergum concentrated close to grooves between areas and to a longitudinal axis marked by lack of epidermic pigment, resembling a central longitudinal groove. All tubercles and granules of body are rounded, basitarsus I of male is swollen, the ocularium and its pair of tubercles are robust, and anterior portion of prosoma lacks camouflage of dirt (characters shared with some species of Pseudotrogulus   ), while the opening of the scent glands is large and directed upward (as in Acrogonyleptes   and Hernandaria   ). Mesotergum divided into three areas. This is the only genus of the subfamily that may have or not sexual dimorphism in leg IV.
