Abstract

The Geogarypidae is raised to family status, and three genera are recognised: Geogarypus Chamberlin, Afrogarypus Beier and Indogarypus Beier; the latter is raised to generic level. The following species are recorded from Australia: G. rhantus Harvey, G. taylori, sp. nov., G. exochus, sp. nov., G. pisinnus, sp. nov. and G. connatus, sp. nov. Diagrams are provided of the pedipalps of the type-species of the three recognised genera. The taxonomic position of the Pseudogarypidae is discussed, and the Feaelloidea (Feaellidae and Pseudogarypidae) is regarded as the sister-group of the Chthonioidea (Chthoniidae and T ridenchthoniidae).
