T. solncevae n. sp. is characterized by short and broad foretarsal sensilla c and e, presence of cephalic seta d6 on head, presence of seta Pla on abdominal tergites I–VI, and sensilliform accessory setae on segments I–VI. F. uteorum n. sp. (Colorado) possesses 19 posterior setae on abdominal tergite VII, including median seta Pc, and 14 setae on tergite IX. A key to known world Tuxenentulus and Fjellbergella spp. is provided.
