Informal group of genera DIOLENINES

Mutual diagnostic characters of genera included. Differs from other groups by unusually long coxa I and trochanter I, legs I usually enormously long, with tibia “flag” like - swollen, dark, with fringe of long black setae and double row of long ventral spines. However, some genera have similar legs I, with longer coxa and trochanter, but structure of palps and spermathecae incompatible - for example Bristowia CHRYSILLINES (?), Tarodes and Udvardya (both EUOPHRYINES).
