Family: Atracidae Hogg,1901 [] Back

Gen. Hadronyche L. Koch , 1873 [ ]
N.B.: Transferred from Dipluridae to Hexathelidae by Raven, 1980a: 255 and to Atracidae by Hedin et al., 2018: 4. Considered a senior synonym of Styphlopis Rainbow, 1913, Pseudatrax Rainbow, 1914 and Anepsiada Rainbow & Pulleine, 1918 (but not of Atrax O. Pickard-Cambridge, 1877, contra Raven, 1980a: 255, after Main, 1985b: 42) by Gray, 1988: 117. Hoser, 2017 separated three new genera (Swilearanea, Shireenaranea and Grayaraneaus [sic]), revalidated Anepsiada Rainbow & Pulleine, 1918 and devided Hadronyche into two subgenera; this is not followed here, because the author did not note any material he examinded and just copied text parts from Gray, 2010, who regarded all species included by Hoser, 2017 as belonging to Hadronyche.
