Back | Genus list
N.B.: Considered a senior synonym of Neolanidae Forster & Wilton, 1973 (Jocqué & Dippenaar-Schoeman, 2006: 66). Transfer of Holomamoea and Huara to Cicurinidae fam. n. (Murphy & Roberts, 2015: viii) as well as transfer of the former members of Neolanidae to Amaurobiidae (Murphy & Roberts, 2015: ix) not sufficiently justified and is not accepted here. Amphinectidae Forster & Wilton, 1973 [] synonymized with Desidae by Wheeler et al., 2017: 606.
