Amauropilio Mello-Leitão, 1937 is a genus of leiobuninae sclerosomatidae with 2 species from Oligocene of Colorado.

Type speciesEdit

Phalangium lacoei Petrunkevitch, 1922, by original designation.

SpeciesEdit

EtymologyEdit

Greek αμαυρός (dim, faint, uncertain, obscure, unknown) + Opilio. Gender masculine.

PlacementEdit

Petrunkevitch (1922) admittedly used the genus Phalangium very loosely, only to represent either Opiliones or Eupnoi. Mello-Leitão created the genus Amauropilio and assigned it with doubt to the Leiobuninae. Staręga (1976) placed A. lacoei in the Gagrellidae. Cokendolpher & Cokendolpher (1982) placed it in Leiobuninae.
