N.B.: Transferred from the Clubionidae to the Miturgidae by Ramírez, Bonaldo & Brescovit, 1997: 45, to the Eutichuridae by Ramírez, 2014: 341; considered a senior synonym of Chiracanthops Mello-Leitão, 1942 by Bonaldo & Brescovit, 1992: 732 (synonymy not accepted by Wunderlich, 2012b: 185) and of Helebiona Benoit, 1977e: 79, type H. wilma Benoit, 1977 (spelling Helenebiona in Brignoli, 1983c: 552 is a lapsus, genus transferred from the Clubionidae to Miturgidae by Ramírez, Bonaldo & Brescovit, 1997: 45); Eutittha Thorell, 1878 removed from synonymy by Esyunin & Zamani, 2020: 1296, rejecting Simon, 1897a: 79, 87; Chiracanthium is an unjustified emendation; re-transfer to Clubionidae (Murphy & Roberts, 2015: viii) not sufficiently justified and is not accepted here.
