Family: CORINNIDAE

Gen. Megalostrata Karsch, 1880 [urn:lsid:amnh.org:spidergen:02248]

N.B.: considered a senior synonym of Chemmis Simon, 1898 (transferred from the Micariinae (Gnaphosidae) to the Liocranidae by Reiskind, 1969: 165) by Bonaldo, 2000: 116, who regarded all species other than M. depicta and M. raptor as misplaced and probably not corinnines.

Transferred to other genera:
M. atrox Caporiacco, 1955 -- see Erendira.
M. barroana (Chamberlin, 1925) -- see Sparianthis under Sparassidae.
M. lohmanderi Caporiacco, 1955 -- see Erendira.
M. pictithorax Caporiacco, 1955 -- see Erendira.
M. steckleri (Gertsch, 1936) -- see Septentrinna.
M. unicolor (Banks, 1901) -- see Zorocrates under Zorocratidae.
