Family: Linyphiidae Blackwall,1859 [] Back

Gen. Acanthoneta Eskov & Marusik , 1992 [ ]
N.B.: described as a subgenus of Poeciloneta, elevated to genus by Sun, Marusik & Tu, 2014: 88, after Saaristo & Tanasevitch, 1996b: 175, who provided no evidence to justify the elevation; the re-synonymization with Poeciloneta, proposed by Breitling, 2019b: 29, is not accepted here as it is based mainly on COI (see FAQ 7).
