N.B.: considered by some authors (e.g., Prószyński & Starega, 1971: 53) as a junior synonym of Tarentula Sundevall, 1831 but revival of that name has not been followed by subsequent authors (e.g., Brignoli, 1983c: 436); considered a senior synonym of Solicosa Roewer, 1960d: 928, type Alopecosa solitaria (Herman, 1879) by Lugetti & Tongiorgi, 1969: 91 (through transfer of type species) and of Jollecosa Roewer, 1960b: 775, type Lycosa jollensis Schenkel, 1951 by Dondale & Redner, 1979: 1035.
