Family: LINYPHIIDAE

Gen. Poeciloneta Kulczyn'ski, 1894 [urn:lsid:amnh.org:spidergen:01209]

N.B.: not a junior synonym of Drapetisca Menge, 1866 (Merrett, Locket & Millidge, 1985: 399, contra Millidge, 1977: 43); the elevation of the subgenus Acanthoneta Eskov & Marusik, 1992 to generic status by Saaristo & Tanasevitch, 1996b: 175 was not accompanied by a diagnosis or justification, and is therefore not followed here.

Transferred to other genera:
P. aggressa (Chamberlin & Ivie, 1943) -- see Acanthoneta.
P. dokutchaevi Eskov & Marusik, 1994 -- see Acanthoneta.
P. furcata (Emerton, 1913) -- see Acanthoneta.
P. hengshanensis (Chen & Yin, 2000) -- see Acanoides.

In synonymy:
P. berthae (Levi & Levi, 1955) = P. lyrica (Zorsch, 1937) (Saaristo & Tanasevitch, 2000: 260).
P. picturata (L. Koch, 1879, T from Linyphia) = P. variegata (Blackwall, 1841) (Holm, 1973: 97).
P. yanensis Marusik & Koponen, 2002 = P. variegata (Blackwall, 1841) (Tanasevitch, 2010e: 276).
