Gen. Chira Peckham & Peckham, 1896 [urn:lsid:nmbe.ch:spidergen:02887] Detail
N.B.: Shira is the original spelling, but an application has been made to the International Commission to validate Simon's emendation (M. E. Galiano, Bull. Zool. Nomen. 46: 106, Case 2656) and thus the spelling Chira is to be used until or unless the Commission rejects the proposal); considered a senior synonym of Ilarginus Mello-Leitão, 1939 by Galiano, 1961b: 161; of Alcimonotus Simon, 1902 (itself considered a senior synonym of Goya Mello-Leitão, 1945 by Galiano, 1961a: 322) by Galiano, 1968b: 350; and of Crulsia Mello-Leitão, 1930 by Galiano, 1980b: 37.
