N.B.: considered a senior synonym of Metidae by Heimer & Nentwig, 1982: 292 and Levi, 1986a: 93 (although not by Wunderlich, 1986: 115), but that name is unavailable in any case, as it is preoccupied in the Copepoda; see note under Araneidae regarding the placement of nephilines; includes taxa placed by Forster & Forster, 1999: 166 in the "Nanometidae" (see Álvarez-Padilla & Hormiga, 2011: 802); some genera considered members of the Zygiellidae by Wunderlich, 2004f.
