Family: Theridiidae Sundevall,1833 [urn:lsid:nmbe.ch:spiderfam:0099] Back

Gen. Steatoda Sundevall , 1833 [urn:lsid:nmbe.ch:spidergen:00720 ]
N.B.: Considered a senior synonym of Asagena Sundevall, 1833 (synonymy not accepted by Wunderlich, 2008b: 198), Lithyphantes Thorell, 1869 and Teutana Simon, 1881 by Levi, 1957b: 375 and of Stethopoma Thorell, 1890, Ancocoelus Simon, 1894, Steassa Simon, 1910, Argyroelus Hogg, 1922 and Asagenella Schenkel, 1937 by Levi & Levi, 1962: 16-28; not a senior synonym of Moero O. Pickard-Cambridge, 1904 (Griswold, 1987b: 505). Re-synonymization of Asagena (Murphy & Roberts, 2015: viii) not sufficiently justified and is not accepted here.
