Family: Hahniidae Bertkau,1878 [] Back

Gen. Chorizomma Simon , 1872 [ ]
N.B.: Transferred to Dictynidae (Cicurininae) from the Agelenidae (as a subgenus of Cicurina Menge, 1871, after Chamberlin & Ivie 1942: 21) by Lehtinen, 1967: 222; elevated to genus by de Blauwe, 1973a: 16 and Brignoli, 1983c: 518. Transfer to Cicurinidae (Murphy & Roberts, 2015: viii) not sufficiently justified and is not accepted here. Transferred to Hahniidae by Wheeler et al., 2017: 607 [not explicitely, but the type genus of Cicurininae, Cicurina, was transferred].
