FAM. TRECHALEIDAE Simon, 1890a: 82 [urn:lsid:amnh.org:spiderfam:0033]

Last updated Aug. 21, 2013

N.B.: recognized as the "Trechalea genus-group" and considered "not a close relative of the nursery-web Pisauridae" by Sierwald, 1990: 51 (cf. Carico, 1986); considered by Griswold (1993: 37) to include the Rhoicininae, including (per Sierwald, 1993: 69) at least Barrisca Chamberlin & Ivie, 1936, Rhoicinus Simon, 1898 and Shinobius Yaginuma, 1991; the older name Triclaridae O. P.-Cambridge, 1877 is now a nomen oblitum.

Transferred to other families:
Sisenna Simon, 1898 -- see Architis under Pisauridae.

In synonymy:
Tunabo Chamberlin, 1916 = Neoctenus Simon, 1897 (Silva, 2003: 31).
Magnichela Silva & Lise, 2006 = Paradossenus F. O. P.-Cambridge, 1903 (Silva & Lise, 2011a: 64).
Xingusiella Mello-Leitão, 1940 = Paradossenus F. O. P.-Cambridge, 1903 (Sierwald, 1993: 55).

Nomina dubia:
Demelodos Mello-Leitão, 1943 [urn:lsid:amnh.org:spidergen:01682; N.B.: in the original description, Mello-Leitão, 1943e: 164 used two spellings of this name, the one above and Demolodos; following Caporiacco's (1948a: 632) assumption that the name is an anagram of Dolomedes, the spelling above is assumed to be the correct one; the spelling Demolodes, used by Roewer and subsequent catalogs, is incorrect; placed in the "Trechalea genus-group" by Sierwald, 1990: 51], type D. iheringi Mello-Leitão, 1943e: 164 [urn:lsid:amnh.org:spidersp:019434] (j, Brazil) -- Silva & Lise, 2010d: 66.
Dyrinoides Badcock, 1932, type D. onychiatus Badcock, 1932: 33, f. 25 (Brazil), also including D. minutus Badcock, 1932: 34 (Brazil) -- Carico, 1993b: 231 (N.B.: placed in the "Trechalea genus-group" by Sierwald, 1990: 51).
