Gen. Wamba O. P.-Cambridge, 1896 [urn:lsid:amnh.org:spidergen:00731]

N.B.: removed from the synonymy of Crustulina Menge, 1868 and placed as a junior synonym of Theridion Walckenaer, 1805 by Levi, 1959b: 112, but removed from Theridion and considered a senior synonym of Allodipoena Bryant, 1947b: 184, type A. dianae Bryant, 1947 (=W. atropunctata (Petrunkevitch, 1930)) and Chindellum Archer, 1950: 12, type Theridion intervallatum Emerton, 1915 by Wunderlich, 1995n: 611.

In synonymy:
W. atropunctatus (Petrunkevitch, 1930) = W. congener O. P.-Cambridge, 1896 (Levi, 1959b: 112, sub Theridion, where the younger name was used because congener is preoccupied in Theridion).
W. brevipalpus (Bryant, 1942, T from Theridion) = W. congener O. P.-Cambridge, 1896 (Levi, 1957a: 67, sub Theridion atropunctatum).
W. chindus (Chamberlin & Ivie, 1944, T from Theridion) = W. crispulus (Simon, 1895) (Levi, 1957a: 64, sub Theridion intervallatum).
W. dianae (Bryant, 1947, T from Theridion) = W. congener O. P.-Cambridge, 1896 (Levi, 1957a: 67, sub Theridion atropunctatum).
W. intervallatus (Emerton, 1915, T from Theridion) = W. crispulus (Simon, 1895) (Levi, 1959b: 113, sub Theridion).
W. realisticus (Gertsch & Mulaik, 1936, T from Theridion) = W. crispulus (Simon, 1895) (Levi, 1957a: 64, sub Theridion intervallatum).
