Family: Linyphiidae Blackwall,1859 [urn:lsid:nmbe.ch:spiderfam:0103] Back

Gen. Centromerus Dahl , 1886 [urn:lsid:nmbe.ch:spidergen:00887 ]
N.B.: considered a senior synonym of Atopogyna Millidge, 1984b: 264, type Centromerus cornupalpis (O. Pickard-Cambridge, 1875) by Eskov & Marusik, 1992c: 34; not a senior synonym of Tallusia Lehtinen & Saaristo, 1972 (Millidge, 1984b: 239, contra Locket, Millidge & Merrett, 1974: 107); see also the note under Centromerita; the placement of Tapinasta Simon, 1894 as a junior synonym of Syedra Simon, 1884 rather than this genus by Saaristo & Tanasevitch, 1996b: 175 was not accompanied by a justification and is therefore not followed here; the synonmy of Centromerita and Tallusia with Centromerus is again proposed by Breitling, 2019b: 29 and is not accepted here as it is based mainly on COI (see FAQ 7).
