Family: Malkaridae Davies,1980 [urn:lsid:nmbe.ch:spiderfam:0024] Detail
N.B.: Elevated from a subfamily of Araneidae and placed as the sister group of Mimetidae (Wunderlich, 1986: 124); considered a senior synonym of Sternodidae Moran, 1986: 88 (Platnick & Forster, 1987: 8); considered a subfamily of Mimetidae by Wunderlich, 2004i: 1258. See Agnarsson, 2004: 466 on possible relationships of some genera to the Theridiidae. Synonymy of the type genus Malkara with Perissopmeros (Murphy & Roberts, 2015: viii) not sufficiently justified and is not accepted here; even if this synonymy would be proved the family name Malkaridae stays valid after ICZN article 40.1.

Gen. Perissopmeros Butler, 1932 [urn:lsid:nmbe.ch:spidergen:03626] Detail
N.B.: Considered a junior synonym of Sternodes Butler, 1929 (preoccupied in the Coleoptera by Fischer-Waldheim, 1837 and in the Hymenoptera by Stefani, 1891) by Moran, 1986: 91 and thus having priority over the superfluous replacement name Sternoides Platnick, 1998: 226.
