FAM. TROCHANTERIIDAE Karsch, 1879

Last updated Apr. 7, 2001

N.B.: considered valid by Platnick, 1985a: 5 and here; placed as a senior synonym of the gnaphosid subfamily Hemicloeinae by Wunderlich, 1987a: 248, but relimited and considered a senior synonym of Platoridae by Platnick, 1990a: 38.

Transferred to other families:
Vectius Simon, 1897 -- see Gnaphosidae.

In synonymy:
Hitoegumoa Kishida, 1914 = Plator Simon, 1880 (Platnick, 1976e: 3).

Gen. Corimaethes Simon, 1908

N.B.: here transferred from the Hemicloeinae (Gnaphosidae), based on examination of type material (Paris), which has elongated fourth trochanters and lacks enlarged piriform gland spigots on the anterior lateral spinnerets.
