Back | Genus list
N.B.: Revived to include several genera formerly misplaced in the Miturgidae and Tengellidae (= Zoropsidae) by Griswold et al., 1999: 59; considered a subfamily of Zoropsidae by Wunderlich, 2004k: 1495 and Raven & Stumkat, 2005: 356 (the latter placement was not followed here, as at least the type genus lacks some of the salient features of the enlarged Zoropsidae); considered a junior synonym of Zoropsidae Bertkau, 1882 by Polotow, Carmichael & Griswold, 2015. Also regarded as a seperate family by Murphy & Roberts, 2015: ix.
