The World Spider Catalog, V15 by N. I. Platnick (c) 2000 - 2014 AMNH

Family: ARANEIDAE

Gen. Heterognatha Nicolet, 1849 [urn:lsid:amnh.org:spidergen:01489]

N.B.: implicitly revalidated by Levi, 1991a: 177-180, after Archer, 1963; Levi's (1991) suggestion that this genus may belong to the Mimetidae was rejected by Platnick & Shadab, 1993: 9; possibly a close relative of Testudinaria Taczanowski, 1879.

In synonymy:
H. collusor Petrunkevitch, 1911 (T from Araneus) = H. chilensis Nicolet, 1849 (Archer, 1963: 22).
