Family: Hahniidae Bertkau,1878 [urn:lsid:nmbe.ch:spiderfam:0041] Back

Gen. Mastigusa Menge , 1854 [urn:lsid:nmbe.ch:spidergen:01985 ]
N.B.: Type species is from Baltic amber; first used for recent species previously misplaced in Tetrilus (Wunderlich, 1986). 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].
