Dipluridae Family of spiders

The family Dipluridae, known as curtain-web spiders are a group of spiders in the infraorder Mygalomorphae, that have two pairs of booklungs, and chelicerae (fangs) that move up and down in a stabbing motion. A number of genera, including that of the Sydney funnel-web spider (Atrax), used to be classified in this family but have now been moved to Hexathelidae.

Sac spider Family of spiders

The sac spiders of the family Clubionidae have a very confusing taxonomic history. Once, this family was a large catch-all taxon for a disparate collection of spiders, similar only in that they had eight eyes arranged in two rows and conical anterior spinnerets that touched, and were wandering predators that built silken retreats, or sacs, usually on plant terminals, between leaves, under bark, or under rocks. These are now recognized to include several families, some of which are more closely related to the three-clawed spiders, like lynx and wolf spiders, than to Clubionidae and related families.

Corinnidae Family of spiders

Corinnidae is a family of araneomorph spiders, sometimes called corinnid sac spiders. The family, like other "clubionoid" families, has a confusing taxonomic history. Once it was a part of the large catch-all taxon Clubionidae, now very much smaller. The original members of the family are apparently similar only in that they have eight eyes arranged in two rows, conical anterior spinnerets that touch and are generally wandering predators that build silken retreats, or sacs, usually on plant terminals, between leaves, under bark or under rocks.

Nemesiidae Family of spiders

Nemesiidae, also known as funnel-web trapdoor spiders, is a family of mygalomorph spiders first described by Eugène Simon in 1889, and raised to family status in 1985. Before becoming its own family, it was considered part of "Dipluridae". Fossils have been found dating this family back to the Lower Cretaceous.

Dionycha section of arachnids

The Dionycha are a clade of spiders (Araneomorphae:Entelegynae), characterized by the possession of two tarsal claws with tufts of hairs (setae) beside them, which produce strong adhesion, enabling some species to climb glass. The circumscription of the group has varied widely; a 2014 analysis resulted in about 20 families, including Salticidae, Thomisidae, and Clubionidae. Spiders in this group have better senses than others, some even show courtship dances and songs.

Battalus is a genus of Australian corinnid sac spiders first described by Ferdinand Karsch in 1878. Originally placed with the ground spiders, it was moved to the Corinnidae in 2015.

<i>Nyssus coloripes</i> species of arachnid

Nyssus coloripes, known as the orange-legged swift spider, is a spider belonging to the family Corinnidae. It is found commonly in Australia and New Zealand.

Trachelidae Family of spiders

Trachelidae is a family of araneomorph spiders first described by Eugène Simon in 1897 as a subfamily called "Tracheleae". It was placed in the family Clubionidae, then later in Corinnidae when the Clubionidae were split up. An analysis by Martín J. Ramírez in 2014 suggested that it was not closely related to other members of the Corinnidae, and was better treated as a separate family.

Utivarachna is a genus of Asian araneomorph spiders in the Trachelidae family first described by Kyukichi Kishida in 1940. It was largely ignored until Christa L. Deeleman-Reinhold revised the sac and ground spiders in 2001, transferring some species from Trachelas and adding several new ones. The genus was further expanded in 2014 and 2015.

Pteroneta is a genus of sac spiders first described by Christa L. Deeleman-Reinhold in 2001.

Leichhardteus is a genus of Australian corinnid sac spiders first described by B. C. Baehr & Robert Raven in 2013.

Medmassa is a genus of corinnid sac spiders first described by Eugène Simon in 1887 under the name "Megaera", later renamed because "Megaera" was already in use as a synonym of the reptile genus Trimeresurus.

Parachemmis is a genus of corinnid sac spiders first described by Arthur M. Chickering in 1937 as a genus of ground spiders. It was transferred to Liocranidae in 1969, and to Corinnidae in 1994.
