Physalopteroides valdesi possesses 6 postcloacal papillae; P. dryophisi possesses 6–8 postcloacal papillae; P. grayiacola, P. geckonis, P. bahamensis, P. venancioi possess 8 postcloacal papillae; P. impar, P. minor, P quadridentatum possess 10 postcloacal papillae; P. milneae, P. agamae, P. dactyluris, P. versicoloris possess 12 postcloacal papillae; P. tarentolae and P. grismeri n. sp. possess 14 postcloacal papillae; however, spicules are absent in P. tarentolae, present in P. grismeri n. sp.
