Family: Atracidae Hogg,1901 [] Back

Gen. Hadronyche L. Koch , 1873 [ ]
N.B.: transferred from the Dipluridae to the Hexathelidae by Raven, 1980a: 255 and to the Atracidae by Hedin et al., 2018: 4; considered a senior synonym of Styphlopis Rainbow, 1913: 5 [] (type S. insularis Rainbow, 1913), Pseudatrax Rainbow, 1914a: 260 (type P. moreaui Rainbow, 1914) [] and Anepsiada Rainbow & Pulleine, 1918: 167 [] (type A. ventricosa Rainbow & Pulleine, 1918) by Gray, 1988: 117, but not of Atrax O. Pickard-Cambridge, 1877, contra Raven, 1980a: 255, after Main, 1985b: 42; Hoser, 2017 separated three new genera (Swilearanea, Shireenaranea and Grayaraneaus [sic]), revalidated Anepsiada Rainbow & Pulleine, 1918 and divided Hadronyche into two subgenera, this is not followed here and the new genera are regarded as invalid, because the author did not note any material he examined and just copied text parts from Gray, 2010, who regarded all species included by Hoser, 2017 as belonging to Hadronyche.
