Family: Cybaeidae Banks, 1892 []
Back | Genus list
N.B.: Traditionally considered a subfamily of Agelenidae, placed as a subfamily of Dictynidae by Lehtinen, 1967 and elevated to family by Forster, 1970b: 13; considered a synonym of Argyronetidae Thorell, 1870 (sub Agelenidae: Cybaeinae) by Grothendieck & Kraus, 1994: 272; some recent authors (Jäger, 2006d; Jocqué & Dippenaar-Schoeman, 2006) have used the name Argyronetidae for the enlarged group, but that change is not accepted here (both family-group names are abundantly protected by usage). Re-separation of Argyronetidae (Murphy & Roberts, 2015: viii) not sufficiently justified and is not accepted here.
