Gen. Mecynargus Kulczyn'ski, 1894 [urn:lsid:amnh.org:spidergen:01083]

N.B.: considered a senior synonym of Conigerella Holm, 1967: 19, type Typhochrestus borealis Jackson, 1930 and (following Millidge, 1977) Rhaebothorax Simon, 1926 by Eskov, 1988d: 1832 and Tanasevitch, 1989a: 140; the synonymy of Latithorax Holm, 1943 suggested by Wunderlich, 1995e: 501 is not followed here.

Transferred to other genera:
M. alticola (Holm, 1950) -- see Semljicola.
M. assimilis (Holm, 1945) -- see Semljicola.
M. elgonensis (Fage, 1936) -- see Oreocyba.
M. faustus (O. P.-Cambridge, 1900) -- see Semljicola.
M. hadzji (Caporiacco, 1949) -- see Toschia.
M. lapponicus (Holm, 1939) -- see Semljicola.
M. latus (Holm, 1939) -- see Semljicola.
M. pallidus (Holm, 1939) -- see Scandichrestus.
M. piscator (Simon, 1884) -- see Trichoncoides.
M. subarcticus (Tanasevitch, 1984) -- see Tubercithorax.

In synonymy:
M. borealis thori (Jackson, 1934, T from Rhaebothorax=Mecynargus) = M. borealis (Jackson, 1930) (Holm, 1958b: 40, sub Rhaebothorax).
M. foveolatus (Wiehle, 1960) = M. foveatus (Dahl, 1912) (Moritz, 1973: 199, sub Rhaebothorax).
M. jamalensis (Eskov, 1981) = M. sphagnicola (Holm, 1939) (Eskov & Marusik, 1994: 67).
M. tener (Schenkel, 1927, T from Gongylidiellum) = M. brocchus (L. Koch, 1872) (Thaler, 1969: 213, sub Rhaebothorax).
