Abstract

Shearogovea gen. nov. is erected for Neogovea mexasca Shear, 1977, a troglobitic cyphophthalmid species from a cave system in Oaxaca, Mexico. The new genus does not show affinity to Neogovea Hinton, 1938, as it lacks the characteristic toothed claw of leg II or the fusion of the coxae of legs II to those of legs III (which are in turn fused to coxae of legs IV). Shearogovea gen. nov. is probably not related to other Neotropical neogoveid genera, but its exact phylogenetic position remains unresolved.
