N.B.: relimited by Forster & Platnick, 1977: 2; considered a senior synonym of Symphytognathidae and Mysmenidae by Wunderlich (1986) but those S rejected by Wunderlich, 2011: 512, and of Micropholcommatidae by Schütt, 2003: 133 (based on analysis of very few genera); the family name "Hawkeswoodidae" proposed by Makhan & Ezzatpanah, 2011d: 1, is a nomen nudum that refers to a member of this family (Jiménez, Platnick & Dupérré, 2011: 17; see below, under Pseudanapis).

Transferred to other families:
Anapogonia Simon, 1905 -- see Symphytognathidae.
Olgania Hickman, 1979 -- see Micropholcommatidae.
Teutoniella Brignoli, 1981 -- see Micropholcommatidae.
