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 the Agelenidae to the 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 sensu Lehtinen, 1967) from the Agelenidae to the 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 the Dictynidae to the Hahniidae by Wheeler et al., 2017: 607; the transfers of Chorizomma, Cicurina and Mastigusa to the Cicurinidae by Murphy & Roberts, 2015: viii are not sufficiently justified and are 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.
