Gen. Wadicosa Zyuzin, 1985 [urn:lsid:amnh.org:spidergen:01676]

W. Zyuzin, 1985a: 48, type Pardosa venatrix (Lucas, 1846), but the type species was misidentified by Zyuzin (see Wunderlich, 1987a: 236) and was fixed instead as W. fidelis by Kronestedt & Zyuzin, 2009: 814); see Kronestedt, 1987: 975, for comments on possibly congeneric species, and Zehethofer, 1998 for discussion of a species from Borneo.

In synonymy:
W. armillata (Schenkel, 1936, T from Pardosa) = W. fidelis (O. P.-Cambridge, 1872) (Yu & Song, 1988c: 117, sub Pardosa venatrix, contra Hu & Li, 1987b: 291, who placed armillata as a junior S of P. birmanica instead).
W. galerita (L. Koch, 1875, T from Pardosa) = W. fidelis (O. P.-Cambridge, 1872) (Wunderlich, 1992a: 467).
W. indistinctepicta (Strand, 1907, T from Pardosa) = W. fidelis (O. P.-Cambridge, 1872) (Yu & Song, 1988c: 117, sub Pardosa venatrix).
W. kraepelini (Roewer, 1959, removed from S of W. venatrix) = W. fidelis (O. P.-Cambridge, 1872) (Wunderlich, 1992a: 467, contra Buchar, 1980: 88).
W. spilota (Pocock, 1903, T from Pardosa) = W. fidelis (O. P.-Cambridge, 1872) (Alderweireldt & van Harten, 2004: 354).
W. pararmillata (Schenkel, 1963, T from Pardosa) = W. fidelis (O. P.-Cambridge, 1872) (Yu & Song, 1988c: 117, sub Pardosa venatrix).
