N.B.: Lehtinen's (1967) placement of some nursery-web spiders in a separate family Dolomedidae was rejected by Sierwald, 1990: 50, who also recognized a "Trechalea genus group [that] is not a close relative of the nursery-web Pisauridae" and whose members are now listed under Trechaleidae; considered a senior synonym of Bradystichidae (removed from the synonymy of Lycosidae by Lehtinen, 1967: 293) by Platnick & Forster, 1993: 3 and of Halidae Jocqué, 1994 by Jocqué & Dippenaar-Schoeman, 2006: 212.
