Diagnosis. Cerhomalus petrovitzi is most similar to C. mechowi in having the ventral fossae on the apices of the parameres completely bordered and the apices right angled in lateral view but can be separated from it in having the widened part of a paramere (in lateral view) about two thirds the length of the paramere and ventral fossa of a paramere longer and narrower.

Distribution. The species is known from western Democratic Republic of the Congo.
