Family: Desidae Pocock,1895 [] Back

Gen. Badumna Thorell , 1890 [ ]
N.B.: Listed in Matachiinae (Amaurobiidae) by Lehtinen, 1967: 218,  implicitly transferred to Desidae by Forster, 1970b: 65. Considered a senior synonym of Aphyctoschaema Simon, 1902 and Derxema Simon, 1906 (both transferred from the Amaurobiidae) by Lehtinen, 1967: 218 and of Ixeuticus Dalmas, 1917 (itself considered a senior synonym of Hesperauximus Gertsch, 1937, transferred from the Amaurobiidae, by Marples, 1959b: 335, and synonymized with Badumna by Lehtinen, 1967: 218) by Gray, 1983a: 249 (contra Forster, 1970b: 63, who recognized Ixeuticus as valid); not a senior synonym of Phryganoporus Simon, 1908 (Gray, 2002: 276, contra Gray, 1983a: 249. Transfer back to Amaurobiidae (Murphy & Roberts, 2015: viii) not sufficiently justified and is not accepted here.
