Family: Desidae Pocock,1895 [] Back

Gen. Akatorea Forster & Wilton , 1973 [ ]
Genus comment: A. Forster & Wilton, 1973: 175, type Maniho gracilis Marples, 1959.
N.B.: Transfer of Akatorea otagoensis to Amaurobiidae (Murphy & Roberts, 2015: viii) not sufficiently justified and is not accepted here, furthermore is it not the type species of the genus. Transferred from Amphinectidae to Desidae by Wheeler et al., 2017: 606 - not explicitely but together with the whole family.
