Further research needs to be conducted on the acetabula of different African populations due to the morphometric and morphological similarities between the Black African population group of KwaZulu-Natal and the Nigerian population studied by Ukoha et al.
-- Genital acetabula three to many pairs; female genital field with two pairs of acetabular plates; anterior female plates with an elognate, inner flap that is heavily sclerotized and bears one or two, short, thick, spinous, setae; posterior female plate modified and resembling Polyatax, but with fewer acetabula; coxal plates variable, with one species, U.
-- Genital acetabula five pairs; female genital field with two pairs of acetabular plates; anterior female plates with a slightly elongate, inner flap that is heavily sclerotized and bears one or two, short, thick, spinous, setae; posterior female plate unmodified; pedipalp subcylindrical and well-sclerotized with tarsus usually elongate quadrate in outline with large, obvious clawlets; dorsum with obvious dorsal plates; male genital field as in Polyatax; male fourth walking leg modified, especially genu, but the tibia is essentially unmodified; tarsal claws of walking legs bifid; coxal plates with obvious borders.
