Vibone Kauri, 1961 is a monospecific genus of the family Neopilionidae, subfamily Ballarrinae.

TaxonomyEdit

  • Vibone Kauri, 1961:145[1]

DiagnosisEdit

(from [2])

As far as can be determined from Kauri's drawings and excellent description of the female holotype of V. vetusta, Vibone is similar to Ballarra females except in having an ovipositor corpus with only 2 segments, 2 seminal receptacles, a tibia greater than 0.5 length of patella and more pronounced pseudoarticulatory nodules on all leg femora. The seminal receptacles are in the superior part of the internal vagina, each consisting of an elongated loop. As in some other Ballarrinae, the palpal claw is lacking.
