MALACONOTHRIDAE  Berlese, 1916

Berlese (1896b, pp. 26-27) classified Nothrus monodactylus Michael  (1888, p. 528, pl. 45 figs. 10-14) as Angelia monodactyla  with the Nothridae  1). Afterwards (Berlese, 1913a) the genus Malaconothrus  Berlese, 1904 (to which monodactylus  belongs) was classified in a tribe ( Michaeliini  ) of this family. Finally, Berlese (1916a, pp. 175, 176) created a separate family Malaconothridae  , consisting of the tribes Malaconothrini  and Lohmannini  . At present the genera Malaconothrus  Berlese (1904) and Trimalaconothrus  Berlese (1916) are the only representatives of the family; Mucronothrus  Trägardh (1931) is according to Hammer (1958, p. 25) related to Trhypochthoniellus  .

1) Berlese (1896b) records A. monodactyla  from England only; possibly he had not seen the species.
