The microscopic preparations of Monodauropus mirabilis Remy, 1953, and Afrauropus occiduus Remy, 1959 (both made by Paul Remy himself and housed in the Muséum national d’Histoire naturelle, Paris) have been restudied. The holotype of the former no longer exists. The one of the latter species shows characters, which require the suppression of Remy’s family Afrauropidae Remy, 1959, and moving the genus to Pauropodidae Lubbock, 1867. A new diagnose for Afrauropus is proposed.
