Family: Linyphiidae Blackwall,1859 [] Back

Gen. Sphecozone O. Pickard-Cambridge , 1871 [ ]
N.B.: Considered a senior synonym of Hypselistoides Tullgren, 1901 by Millidge, 1985: 66, of Brattia Simon, 1894 by Miller, 2004: 529, and of Clitolyna Simon, 1894, type Erigone fastibilis Keyserling, 1886, and Gymnocymbium Millidge, 1991: 184, type G. grave Millidge, 1991 by Miller, 2007a: 185-186. Not a senior synonym of Ceratinella Emerton, 1882 or Ceratinopsis Emerton, 1882 (Millidge, 1991: 165, contra Wunderlich, 1987a: 170). Synonymy of Clitolyna doubted but not rejected by Dupérré & Harms, 2018: 8; Clitolyna should rather be placed in Dictynidae.
