Comaroma BERTKAU 1889

Diagnosis: A paracymbium is present as a retrodistal outgrowth (fig. 1 ), functional conductor slender (fig. 2), a large tegular apophvsis is present. (Cymbium and bulbus are twisted in the natural position, fig. 1 ).

Type species: Comaroma simoni BERTKAU 1889 (figs. 1-3) from Europe.

Further species: C. mendocino (LEVI 1957) (sub Archaerius ) from N-America. Comaroma maculosa Ol 1960 and C. nikahirai (YAGINUMA 1959) (extant, Japan): See Balticoroma - According to the figs. Comaroma tongjunca ZHANG & CHEN 1994 from China is not a member of the Comarominae and in my opinion even not of the Anapidae s. I., but probably of the Theridiidae ; a revision is needed.

Relationships: According to the low prosoma and Opisthosoma, the chaetotaxy and the structures of the tf-pedipalpus Balticoroma n. gen. is related. In Balticoroma the structures of the tf-pedipalpus are different: A retrodistal paracymbium is absent, a retrodorsal elevation "paracymbium" is present, the bulbus structures are different (see the figs.).

Distribution: Holarctic (Europe and N-America).
