Key to African species of Proteromichaeliini  and Bimichaeliini

1. Primary pattern of large lamellae in clumps and in cells ( Figs. 92View FIGURES 90−100, 134A, BView FIGURE 134; Uusitalo 2010: Appendix 3). ( Proteromichaelia  gen. n.). Only in -area neotrichous; a pair of eyes present ( Fig. 90View FIGURES 90−100; Uusitalo 2010: Appendix 3)............... P. sila  sp. n.

- Cells of primary pattern polygonal; secondary pattern by transversely orientated small lamellae ( Figs. 119View FIGURES 119−125, 133A, BView FIGURE 133) ( Laminamichaelia Uusitalo, 2010  )............................................................................. 2

2. Additional setae, if present, only on lateral rims of prodorsum, i.e. on soft integument; only one pair of setae on sclerotized in - area ( Fig. 105View FIGURES 105−111; Uusitalo 2010: fig. 120); two baculiform solenidia on tarsus I ( Fig. 113View FIGURES 112−116). ( setigera  -group). Dorsal setae plumose ( Fig. 106View FIGURES 105−111); tip of solenidion ω1 bent sideways on tarsus I ( Fig. 113View FIGURES 112−116); two piliform solenidia on femur I................................................................................. L. shibai  nom. nov. (= B. ramosus Shiba, 1976  )

- Additional setae inserted all over prodorsum, i.e. on both soft integument and sclerotized parts of area of setae in ( Figs. 119View FIGURES 119−125, 133AView FIGURE 133; Uusitalo 2010: fig. 130); three baculiform solenidia on tarsus I ( Fig. 125View FIGURES 119−125; Uusitalo 2010: fig. 133). ( arbusculosa  -group). Anterior pair of sensilla ve branched ( Fig. 119View FIGURES 119−125); adult more than 500μm in length ( Fig. 120View FIGURES 119−125); baculiform solenidia distant from each other and piliforms missing on tibia II ( Fig. 126View FIGURES 126−130); famulus distally on tarsus I ( Fig. 125View FIGURES 119−125).............
