N.B.: considered a senior synonym of Chemmis Simon, 1898 (transferred from the Micariinae (Gnaphosidae) to the Liocranidae by Reiskind, 1969: 165) by Bonaldo, 2000: 116, who regarded all species other than M. depicta and M. raptor as misplaced and probably not corinnines.
Transferred to other genera:
Megalostrata atrox Caporiacco, 1955 -- see Erendira
Megalostrata barroana (Chamberlin, 1925) -- see Sparianthis
Megalostrata lohmanderi Caporiacco, 1955 -- see Erendira
Megalostrata pictithorax Caporiacco, 1955 -- see Erendira
Megalostrata steckleri (Gertsch, 1936) -- see Septentrinna
