Last updated June 24, 2014

N.B: for illustrations of the femoral organ of six zodariine genera, see Jocqué, 1988b; considered a senior synonym of Cryptothelidae (although that name, by L. Koch, 1872, is actually older) by Wunderlich, 2004l: 1585 and Jocqué & Dippenaar-Schoeman, 2006: 269, contra Davies, 1985: 58 and Jocqué (1986a, b); the younger name is amply protected by usage.
