Family: LYCOSIDAE

Gen. Ocyale Audouin, 1826 [urn:lsid:amnh.org:spidergen:01641]

N.B.: type species is O. atalanta Audouin, 1826, a nomen dubium (at species level, see Alderweireldt, 1996: 1351); considered a senior synonym of Hippasosa Roewer, 1960d: 1003, type H. pilosa Roewer, 1960, by Alderweireldt & Jocqué, 2005: 46, 63.

Transferred to other genera:
O. oraria (L. Koch, 1876) -- see Tetralycosa.

In synonymy:
O. natalica (Roewer, 1960, T from Hippasa) = O. guttata (Karsch, 1878) (Alderweireldt & Jocqué, 2005: 65).
O. neatalanta Alderweireldt, 1996 = O. pilosa (Roewer, 1960) (Alderweireldt & Jocqué, 2005: 63).
O. spissa (Bösenberg & Lenz, 1895) = O. guttata (Karsch, 1878) (Alderweireldt, 1996: 1356).
