Tinus is a genus of nursery web spiders that was first described by Frederick Octavius Pickard-Cambridge in 1901.
As of June 2019 [update] it contains eleven species, found in Central America, the United States, Mexico, India, Cuba, and on the Greater Antilles:
Nursery web spiders (Pisauridae) are a family of araneomorph spiders first described by Eugène Simon in 1890. Females of the family are known for building special nursery webs. When their eggs are about to hatch, a female spider builds a tent-like web, places her egg sac inside, and stands guard outside, hence the family's common name. Like wolf spiders, however, nursery web spiders are roaming hunters that don't use webs for catching prey.
Anyphaenidae is a family of araneomorph spiders, sometimes called anyphaenid sac spiders. They are distinguished from the sac spiders of the family Clubionidae and other spiders by having the abdominal spiracle placed one third to one half of the way anterior to the spinnerets toward the epigastric furrow on the underside of the abdomen. In most spiders the spiracle is just anterior to the spinnerets. Like clubionids, anyphaenids have eight eyes arranged in two rows, conical anterior spinnerets and are wandering predators that build silken retreats, or sacs, usually on plant terminals, between leaves, under bark or under rocks. There are more than 600 species in over 50 genera worldwide.
Metaphidippus is a genus of jumping spiders that was first described by Frederick Octavius Pickard-Cambridge in 1901. The name is combined from Ancient Greek μετά "after, beside" and the salticid genus Phidippus.
Paraphidippus is a genus of jumping spiders that was first described by Frederick Octavius Pickard-Cambridge in 1901. The name is a combination of the Ancient Greek "para" (παρά), meaning "alongside", and the salticid genus Phidippus.
Phiale is a genus of jumping spiders that was first described by Carl Ludwig Koch in 1846. P. albovittata has been considered a junior synonym of Freya perelegans since 2006.
Sidusa is a genus of jumping spiders that was first described by George and Elizabeth Peckham in 1895.
Castianeira is a genus of ant-like corinnid sac spiders first described by Eugen von Keyserling in 1879. They are found in Eurasia, Africa, and the Americas, but are absent from Australia. Twenty-six species are native to North America, and at least twice as many are native to Mexico and Central America.
Lycosa is a genus of wolf spiders distributed throughout most of the world. Sometimes called the "true tarantula", though not closely related to the spiders most commonly called tarantulas today, Lycosa spp. can be distinguished from common wolf spiders by their relatively large size. This genus includes the European Lycosa tarantula, which was once associated with tarantism, a dubious affliction whose symptoms included shaking, cold sweats, and a high fever, asserted to be curable only by the traditional tarantella dance. No scientific substantiation of that myth is known; the venom of Lycosa spiders is generally not harmful.
Micrathena, known as spiny orbweavers, is a genus of orb-weaver spiders first described by Carl Jakob Sundevall in 1833. Micrathena contains more than a hundred species, most of them Neotropical woodland-dwelling species. The name is derived from the Greek "micro", meaning "small", and the goddess Athena.
Metepeira is a genus of orb-weaver spiders first described by F. O. Pickard-Cambridge in 1903. The name is derived from the Ancient Greek μετά and the obsolete genus name Epeira, denoting a genus similar to Epeira.
Ariamnes is a genus of comb-footed spiders that was first described by Tamerlan Thorell in 1869. Some species have greatly elongated abdomens, making them resemble a twig.
Anyphaena is a genus of anyphaenid sac spiders first described by Carl Jakob Sundevall in 1833.
Trechalea is a genus of spiders in the family Trechaleidae. The species of this genus are found in the New World from the United States south to Peru and Brazil.
Elaver is a genus of sac spiders first described by Octavius Pickard-Cambridge in 1898.
Trachelas is a genus of araneomorph spiders originally placed with the Trachelidae, and later moved to the Corinnidae.
Hamataliwa is a genus of lynx spiders that was first described by Eugen von Keyserling in 1887.
Thaumasia is a genus of nursery web spiders that was first described by Josef Anton Maximilian Perty in 1833.
Enna is a genus of South American and Central American araneomorph spiders in the family Trechaleidae, first described by Octavius Pickard-Cambridge in 1897.
