Back | Genus list
N.B.: The genera of Cryphoecinae Lehtinen, 1967 (authorship correctly Simon, 1898a: 250, sub Cryphoeceae; also Cryphoecini Kishida, 1955: 6 is older) were transferred from Agelenidae to Hahniidae by Lehtinen, 1967, considered a subfamily of Dictynidae by Wunderlich, 2004j: 1385 and lately transferred to Cybaeidae by Wheeler et al., 2017: 606. Transfers of Cicurina and related genera (Cicurininae Lehtinen, 1967) from Agelenidae to  Dictynidae (Lehtinen, 1967) have been accepted by Cokendolpher, 2004a: 28; Cicurina, as well as Chorizomma and Mastigusa (which are not explicitely listed by Wheeler et al., 2017) are transferred from Dictynidae to Hahniidae by Wheeler et al., 2017: 607. Transfers of Chorizomma, Cicurina and Mastigusa to Cicurinidae Murphy & Roberts, 2015 (Murphy & Roberts, 2015: viii) not sufficiently justified and is not accepted here. Ono & Ogata, 2018: 619 mention the correct authorship of these subfamilial taxa: Cicurininae Kishida, 1955: 4, Tetrilini Kishida, 1955: 5 and Chorizommatini Kishida, 1955: 6.
