Gen. Plesiopelma Pocock, 1901 [urn:lsid:amnh.org:spidergen:00267]

N.B.: removed from the synonymy of Citharacanthus Pocock, 1900 and considered a senior synonym of Ceropelma Mello-Leitão, 1923 by Pérez-Miles et al., 1996: 55.

Transferred to other genera:
P. flavohirtum (Simon, 1889) -- see Catanduba.

In synonymy:
P. alcirae (Gerschman & Schiapelli, 1954, T from Homoeomma) = P. longisternale Schiapelli & Gerschman, 1942 (Schiapelli & Gerschman, 1970b: 233, sub Ceropelma).
P. symmetricum (Bücherl, 1949, T from Cyclosternum per Raven)= P. insulare (Mello-Leitão, 1923) (Indicatti et al., 2008a: 34).
