Gen. Clubiona Latreille , 1804 [ ]
N.B.: considered a senior synonym of Paraclubiona Lohmander, 1944: 19, type Clubiona corticalis (Walckenaer, 1802) by most workers; no justification was provided for the resurrection of Microclubiona Lohmander, 1944 (Wunderlich, 1992a: 481), which is not followed here; Wunderlich, 1995b: 424 placed the same species in Porrhoclubiona Lohmander, 1944, again without justification; considered a senior synonym of Bucliona Benoit, 1977e: 68, type Clubiona dubia O. Pickard-Cambridge, 1869 by Mikhailov, 1997a: 95, revalidated by Zhang et al., 2021: 196; considered a senior synonym of Tolophus Thorell, 1891 by Deeleman-Reinhold, 2001: 90; numerous generic and subgeneric rearrangements listed by Wunderlich, 2011: 135-147 are not followed here, including the establishment of Marmorclubiona Wunderlich, 2011: 136, type C. marmorata L. Koch, 1866 [] for the C. marmorata group of Mikhailov, 1995 and Breviclubiona Wunderlich, 2011: 139, type C. brevipes Blackwall, 1841 [] for the C. brevipes group of Mikhailov, 1995, both of which were also formally synonymized by Mikhailov, 2012: 179, along with Anaclubiona Ono, 2010a: 4, type Clubiona zilla Dönitz & Strand, 1906 []; the subgenera Euryclubiona Lohmander, 1944 (type Clubiona stagnatilis Kulczyński, 1897) and Microclubiona are considered monophyletic by Breitling, 2021: 8; Porrhoclubiona Lohmander, 1944 elevated to genus by Marusik & Omelko, 2018c: 22, re-synonymization by Breitling, 2019c: 67 not accepted here, as a further splitting of Clubiona is expected.
