Gen. Afrarchaea Forster & Platnick , 1984 [urn:lsid:nmbe.ch:spidergen:03373 ]
Genus comment: A. Forster & Platnick, 1984: 24, type Archaea godfreyi Hewitt, 1919; the synonymy of this genus with Archaea C. L. Koch & Berendt, 1854 suggested by Eskov, 1992c: 312 was not based on examination of Recent specimens and has not been accepted by subsequent workers; the synonymy of this genus with Eriauchenius O. Pickard-Cambridge 1881 suggested by Wunderlich, 2004c: 791 is also not accepted here.
