Family: Philodromidae Thorell,1870 [urn:lsid:nmbe.ch:spiderfam:0057] Back

Gen. Philodromus Walckenaer , 1826 [urn:lsid:nmbe.ch:spidergen:02615 ]
N.B.: considered a senior synonym of Philodromoides Scheffer, 1904 by Gertsch, in Schick, 1965: 62 and of Horodromoides Gertsch, 1933; Logunov (1997b) and Logunov & Kunt (2010) followed Wunderlich in recognizing the genus Artanes Thorell, 1869, but as Muster (2009a) demonstrated, this unjustified elevation of an automorphic species group would render Philodromus paraphyletic and is therefore here rejected (as it was also by Muster & Van Keer, 2010: 65). Similarly, various genera and placements by Wunderlich, 2012a, are based neither on cladistic analysis nor an adequate taxon sample, and are not followed here, including the erection of the generic names Emargidromus Wunderlich, 2012a: 34, type P. emarginatus (Schrank, 1803), Philodromimus Wunderlich, 2012a: 36, type P. dispar Walckenaer, 1826).
