Family: Araneidae Clerck,1757 [urn:lsid:nmbe.ch:spiderfam:0102] Detail
Gen. Heterognatha Nicolet, 1849 [urn:lsid:nmbe.ch:spidergen:01489] Detail
N.B.: implicitly revalidated by Levi, 1991a: 177-180, after Archer, 1963; Levi's (1991) suggestion that this genus may belong to the Mimetidae was rejected by Platnick & Shadab, 1993: 9; possibly a close relative of Testudinaria Taczanowski, 1879.
