Gen. Neoscona Simon, 1864 [urn:lsid:amnh.org:spidergen:01529]

N.B.: listed by Roewer as a synonym of Araneus Clerck, 1757, but accepted by all recent authors; considered a senior synonym of Chinestela Chamberlin, 1924 by Archer, 1958: 17; of Cubanella Franganillo, 1926 by Franganillo, 1936c: 76 (by transfer of type species); and of Afraranea Archer, 1951a: 21, type Araneus sanguipes Thorell, 1899 (but based on a misidentification by Archer of N. penicillipes) but not of Eriovixia Archer, 1951 (contra Berman & Levi, 1971: 469) by Grasshoff, 1986: 4.
