Family: Lycosidae Sundevall, 1833 [urn:lsid:nmbe.ch:spiderfam:0100]
Back | Genus list
N.B.: According to Brignoli, 1983c: 432, "Guy (1966, 1969) has proposed many synonymies and has downgraded many genera to subgenus rank; as this author based his conclusions more on nomenclature than on the study of material (or even of the original descriptions) Platnick (WSC 15.0) did not accept his conclusions)." The changes by Guy, 1966 are noted below (except where more recent work has superseded them); Guy, 1969 is merely a literature compilation that reflects those changes and is not cited separately. Piacentini & Ramírez, 2019: 233-237 confirm ten valid subfamilies of Lycosidae:  Venoniinae Lehtinen & Hippa, 1979, Zoicinae Lehtinen & Hippa, 1979 (= Piratinae Zyuzin, 1993), Evippinae Zyuzin, 1985, Sosippinae Dondale, 1986 (= Hygrolycosinae He & Song, 1996), Artoriinae Framenau, 2007, Tricassinae Alderweireldt & Jocqué, 1993 (= Arctosinae He & Song, 1996), Hippasinae Simon, 1898, Allocosinae Dondale, 1986, Pardosinae Simon, 1898 (= Wadicosinae Zyuzin, 1985) and Lycosinae Sundevall, 1833.
