Annotation:

Juvenile instars of Eueremaeus travei are described and illustrated in detail. Juveniles of Eueremaeus travei and Eueremaeus oblongus are compared. New diagnoses to Eremaeidae, Eremaeus, Eueremaeus and Tricheremaeus are given. An identification key to nymphs of the genera is presented.
