Guineobodes   gen. n.

Diagnosis: Family Carabodidae   , subfamily: Opisthocepheinae   . Lamellae fused medially, translamellar apophysis, convex dorsosejugal region and a very highly notogastral elevation present. Fourteen pairs of notogastral setae. Epimeral setal formula: 3 —1—3— 3. Anogenital setal formula: 5- 1 —2— 3.

Type-species: Machadocepheus papuanus   Balogh, 1970.

Remarks: The new genus stands very near to Opisthocepheus   Aoki, 1977, however, the latter has only four pairs of genital setae, one pair of the notogastral setae in humeral position, and its interlamellar setae short and arising on the surface of the translamellar apophysis.
