Gen. Laestrygones Urquhart, 1894 [urn:lsid:amnh.org:spidergen:01868]

N.B.: transferred from the Oxyopidae to the Toxopidae by Forster, 1964a: 147, here by Forster, 1970b: 121; considered a senior synonym of Stiphidiellum Dalmas, 1917, transferred from the Psechridae, by Forster, 1955c: 186; generic name appears grammatically to be a plural noun, but in the interests of stability should be regarded as an arbitary combination of letters and as masculine singular.
