Hormiga, Gustavo. A Revision and Cladistic Analysis of the Spider Family Pimoidae (Araneoidea: Araneae). Smithsonian Contributions to Zoology, 549, 104 pages, 442 figures, 1 table, 1994.—The spider family Pimoidae is revised at the species level. Twenty-one species, including 11 new species, are recognized in the Pimoidae. All species, including those under the junior synonym Louisfagea (Fage), are grouped in the genus Pimoa Chamberlin and Ivie. Pimoids are distributed in western North America… 
Cladistics and the comparative morphology of linyphiid spiders and their relatives (Araneae, Araneoidea, Linyphiidae)
This paper provides the first quantitative cladistic analysis of linyphiid morphology and agrees with the relationships recently proposed by Wunderlich, except by finding erigonines as the sister group toLinyphiines rather than to mynoglenines.
The erigonine spider genus Sisicottus is revised for the first time and five new species are described: S. quoylei, S. panopeus, S., crossoclavis, S, cynthiae, and S. aenigmaticus.
Phantoms of Gondwana?—phylogeny of the spider subfamily Mynogleninae (Araneae: Linyphiidae)

The preferred topology suggests a single origin of mynoglenines in New Zealand with two dispersal events to Africa, and does not support Gondwana origin.
Higher‐level phylogenetics of linyphiid spiders (Araneae, Linyphiidae) based on morphological and molecular evidence
Almost all combined analyses agree on the monophyly of linyphioids, Pimoidae, Linyphiidae, Erigoninae, Mynogleninee, as well as Stemonyphantes as a basal lineage within L Tinyphiidae.
Revision and Cladistic Analysis of the Orbweaving Spider Genus Cyrtognatha Keyserling, 1881 (Araneae, Tetragnathidae)
A cladistic analysis including all known species of Cyrtognatha plus 51 outgroup taxa scored for a total of 194 morphological and behavioral characters support the monophyly of CyrTognatha, six of which are free of homoplasy.
A phylogenetic analysis of the orb-weaving spider family Araneidae (Arachnida, Araneae)
The first cladistic analysis focused at the tribal and subfamily level of the orb-weaving spider family Araneidae shows behavioral and spinneret features are most consistent on the phylogeny, while sexual size dimorphism evolved once in nephilines, twice in araneids, and reverted to monomorphism five times.
A new American species of the spider genus Pimoa (Araneae, Pimoidae).
A new species of the genus Pimoa is described from California, the first pimoid to be described from North America since publication of the family monograph of Hormiga (1994).
Morphological phylogeny of cobweb spiders and their relatives (Araneae, Araneoidea, Theridiidae)
The results suggest the monophyletic origin of both kleptoparasitism and araneophagy in the lineage leading to Argyrodinae, negating hypotheses that either arose from the other.
Unexpected diversity in the relictual European spiders of the genus Pimoa (Araneae : Pimoidae)
The description of two additional European species of Pimoa, discovered within the range of the only former alpine species, P. rupicola and P. delphinica, and the existence of gene flow between populations of the two new species when in sympatry are suggested.
Weintrauboa, a new genus of pimoid spiders from Japan and adjacent islands, with comments on the monophyly and diagnosis of the family Pimoidae and the genus Pimoa (Araneoidea, Araneae)
Parsimony analysis of morphological characters provides robust support for the monophyly of the genus Weintrauboa and corroborates the monalogy of Pimoa, Pimoidsae, and the clade Linyphiidae plus Pimoidae.
