N.B.: Recognized as the "Trechalea genus-group" and considered "not a close relative of the nursery-web Pisauridae" by Sierwald, 1990: 51 (cf. Carico, 1986); considered by Griswold, 1993: 37 to include the Rhoicininae, including (per Sierwald, 1993: 69) at least Barrisca Chamberlin & Ivie, 1936, Rhoicinus Simon, 1898 and Shinobius Yaginuma, 1991; the older name Triclaridae O. Pickard-Cambridge, 1877 is now a nomen oblitum; Cupiennius transferred from Ctenidae to Trechaleidae by Piacentini & Ramírez, 2019: 233.
