Historical review

Baker and Hoffmann (1948)[1] described Cunaxa boneti. Den Heyer (1979d)[2] erected Rubroscirus, described Rubroscirus africanus, Rubroscirus rarus, and Rubroscirus vestus, and transferred Cunaxa boneti to the the genus. Tseng (1980)[3] desbribed Cunaxa exoterica. Muhammad, Chaudhri, and Akbar (1989)[4] described Rubroscirus valentis. Smiley (1992)[5] synonymized Rubroscirus with Cunaxa and described Cunaxa denmarki, Cunaxa floridanus, Cunaxa lehmanae, Cunaxa lukoschusi, Cunaxa metzi, Cunaxa newyorkensis, Cunaxa rackae, and Cunaxa reevesi. Fan (1992)[6] described Rubroscirus denheyeri and Rubroscirus sinensis. Muhammad and Chaudhri (1993)[7] described Rubroscirus rasile and Rubroscirus otiosus. Corpuz-Raros and Garcia (1995)[8] described Cunaxa venusae and Cunaxa viscayana. Bashir, Afzal, and Ali (2005)[9] described Cunaxa reticulatus and transferred Rubroscirus valentis, Rubroscirus rasile, and Rubroscirus otiosus to Cunaxa. Sergeyenko (2006)[10] recognized Rubroscirus as a valid genus and described Rubroscirus khaustovi. Ferla and Rocha (2012)[11] described Rubroscirus nidorum.

Diagnosis

Gnathosoma. Pedipalps 5-segmented and reach beyond the subcapitulum by at most the distal half of the tibiae. An apophysis on the telofemora present. Stout spine-like seta on the genua and tibiotarsi setae present or absent. Tibiotarsi end in a strong claw. Subcapitulum with 6 pairs of setae: 2 pairs of adoral setae and 4 pairs of subcapitular setae (hg1–4). Subcapitulum is reticulated.
Idiosoma, dorsal. Proterosoma bears a shield, complemented with 2 pairs of setose sensillae (at and pt) and 2 pairs of setae (lps and mps). Sensillae at and pt not as densely pilose as in Allocunaxa, Cunaxatricha, and Riscus. Proterosomal shield reticulated. Hysterosomal shield absent in females. Lateral platelets (as in Armascirus and Dactyloscirus) absent. Setae c1h1, and c2 present. Cupule im present laterad and caudally of e1. Integument not bearing the l shield striated. Striations papillated, not smooth or lobed as in Cunaxa.
Idiosoma, ventral. Coxae I–II may be fused; coxae III–IV may be fused. Coxae II–IV setal formula 1-3-1. Genital plates each bear 4 setae; 2 pairs of genital papillae visible underneath the plates. Anal plates bear 1 pair of setae (ps1). 1 pair of setae (h2) associated with, but do not occur on, the anal plates. Cupule ih present in close proximity to h2. Integument between plates striated and bears up to 7 pairs of additional setae. Legs. Tarsi long and slender, and constricted distally but tarsal lobes small and not conspicuous as in Armascirus and Dactyloscirus. A trichobothrium on tibia IV present. Ambulacral claws either side of a 4-rayed empodium present.

Key to adult female Rubroscirus

Rubroscirus is recognized as a valid genus. As suggested by Den Heyer (2011b)[12] Cunaxa boneti, Cunaxa denmarki, Cunaxa exoterica, Cunaxa floridanus, Cunaxa lehmanae, Cunaxa lukoschusi, Cunaxa metzi, Cunaxa newyorkensis, Cunaxa rackae, Cunaxa reevesi, Cunaxa reticulatus, Cunaxa venusae and Cunaxa viscayana are transferred to Rubroscirus as they possess reticulated proterosomal shields.
