*Hakea spp. (Proteaceae)
genus Eurytetranychus Oudemans - Anatetranychus is readily distinguished from Eurytetranychus by the long empodial claw, which is tiny in the latter.
genus Synonychus Miller - Anatetranychus has much longer and differently proportioned legs, longer and more slender empodial claws, and two pairs of associated setae on tarsus I.
