detailed redescriptions, data on distribution and hosts are provided for the
genus and all species and a key is presented to facilitate identification of
species. Photos of the dorsal habitus, scanning electron micrographs and figures
of genitalic structures are given. Two species, Hyoidea horvathi Montandon,
1890 and Hyoidea kerzhneri Hoberlandt, 1963, are reported for the first time
from Tunisia and Turkmenistan, respectively.
