Family: Pisauridae Simon, 1890 [urn:lsid:nmbe.ch:spiderfam:0085]
Back | Genus list
N.B.: Placement of some nursery-web spiders in a separate family Dolomedidae (Lehtinen, 1967) was rejected by Sierwald, 1990: 50, who also recognized a "Trechalea genus group [that] is not a close relative of the nursery-web Pisauridae" and whose members are now listed under Trechaleidae. Considered a senior synonym of Bradystichidae (removed from the synonymy of Lycosidae by Lehtinen, 1967: 293) by Platnick & Forster, 1993: 3 and of Halidae Jocqué, 1994 by Jocqué & Dippenaar-Schoeman, 2006: 212. Probably includes Senoculidae (Murphy & Roberts, 2015: ix).
