Pseudogagrella Redikorzev, 1936 is a genus in the family Sclerosomatidae, subfamily Gagrellinae. Roewer (1954b:181) transferred this genus to Leiobuninae and this was followed by Suzuki (1971). This was based on the lack of femoral nodules (the basis of Roewer's classification), but most characters place this genus in the Gagrellinae.




Abdominal scute hard, with a median spine on second tergite. Pedipalpal tarsus longer than tibia; claw pectinate. Leg II longer than IV; all leg femora ithout false articulations.


  • Location: China, Japan, Taiwan & Sumatra
