Psathyropus L. Koch, 1878 is a genus in the family Sclerosomatidae, subfamily Gagrellinae.

TaxonomyEdit

  • Psathyropus L. Koch, 1878b:785[1]
  • Metagagrella Roewer, 1910a:95[2] (syn. Suzuki, 1973d:250[3])

DistributionEdit

  • Within the triangle formed by Japan & eastern Russia in the north, New Guinea in the east and India in the west.

DiagnosisEdit

(after[3])

  • Toothed tarsal claw (Koch said it had a un-toothed tarsal claw, but re-examination of the type-species revealed that the claw was toothed.)
  • Femur 2 has 1 or 2 nodules
  • Femora 1 and 3 are longer than the body

SpeciesEdit

NotesEdit

  • Curiously, having established the synonymy between Psathyropus and Metagagrella, Suzuki continued to use the junior synonym [3][4][5][6].
