Homeotydeus André, 1980


  • The genus Homeotydeus was erected by André (1980: 116–117) but the type species, H. formosa, was designated in a subsequent publication (André, 1984: 121).
  • 5 species were cited in the key published by André (1984: 121).
  • The genus was disintegrated into 2 parts in 2005 and the three species described by Baker (namely arthurbakeri, cumbrensis, shawi) were transferred to the newly redescribed genus Calotydeus (same chaetotaxy, coxa I with a single seta). This not explicit transfer corresponds to the so-called "N. Syn. (partim)" of André (2005: 995).
  • As a result, the genus contains only the two species with a nude coxa I.
  • Genus not listed by Kaźmierski (1998) and Silva et al. (2016).
