N.B.: the resurrection of Phlogius Simon, 1887 by Schmidt, 1995k: 9 was rejected by Raven, 2000a: 570, who also placed Chilocosmia Schmidt & von Wirth, 1992b: 9, type C. dichromata Schmidt & von Wirth, 1992 and Selenopelma Schmidt & Krause, 1995a: 22, type S. kovariki Schmidt & Krause, 1995 as junior synonyms (see also Schmidt, 2002c: 3, Schmidt, 2015a, Schmidt, 2015c); West, Nunn & Hogg, 2012: 23 placed the type species of Chilocosmia (but not the other species) in Orphnaecus instead. Schmidt & Barensteiner, 2015b report an unnamed species of the genus from Borneo.
