Ceratomontia Roewer, 1915 is a genus of Triaenonychinae, with 22 valid species: 18 in South Africa, including the type species and four occurring in Argentina, Uruguay and south of Brazil.

RelationshipsEdit

Ceratomontia is not a monophyletic genus, and the South African species group with other South African genera of Triaenonychinae (Austromontia, Monomontia), not with the South American species. As the type species is South African it should keep the name of the genus, and a new genus should be erected to allocate the South American species.[1]

Type speciesEdit

Ceratomontia capensis Roewer, 1915, by monotypy.
