The main aim of the present paper is to delimit ‘true’ Spermophora, i.e. the group of species most closely related to the type species S. senoculata (Duges). Apart from the type species, only three previously described species are included in this core group (S. estebani Simon, S. paluma Huber, S. yao Huber), together with nine newly described species: S. kerinci, S. tumbang, S. dumoga, S. maros, S. deelemanae, S. palau, S. kaindi, S. luzonica, and S. sumbawa. Except for the Holarctic and… 
Revision of the enigmatic Southeast Asian spider genus Savarna (Araneae, Pholcidae)
TLDR
The first SEM data is presented, supporting the position of the genus in Pholcinae outside the Pholcus group of genera and weakly suggesting a closer relationship with the genera Khorata Huber, 2005, Spermophorides Wunderlich, 1992, and two undescribed species of unknown affinity from Borneo.
East African pholcid spiders: an overview, with descriptions of eight new species (Araneae, Pholcidae)
TLDR
Crossopriza johncloudsleyi Deeleman-Reinhold & van Harten, 2001, previously only known from Yemen, is redescribed based on specimens from Kenya, and additional new records are given for 21 previously described species.
A new genus of ground and litter-dwelling pholcine spiders from Sarawak (Araneae, Pholcidae)
Two small, ground and litter-dwelling pholcid species from northern Borneo are described as representatives of a new genus, Hantu gen. nov.: H. kapit gen. et sp. nov. and H. niah gen. et sp. nov.
Spiders from Laos with descriptions of new species (Arachnida: Araneae)
TLDR
A total of 58 spider species is reported from material mainly collected on three recent expeditions to Laos, five species are described as new, and the males of Caerostris sumatrana Strand, 1915 and Eurychoera quadrimaculata Thorell, 1897 are described for the first time.
The phylogeny of pholcid spiders: a critical evaluation of relationships suggested by molecular data (Araneae, Pholcidae)
TLDR
An effort to critically evaluate the implications of this phylogeny for pholcid systematics, which largely support the division of Pholcidae into five subfamilies and proposes many taxonomic changes suggested by the data.
Pholcid spiders (Araneae: Pholcidae) from northern Vietnam, with descriptions of nineteen new species.
TLDR
Five genera and 26 species belonging to two subfamilies Arteminae Simon, 1893 and Pholcinae C.L. Koch, 1850 are reported from northern Vietnam, including 19 new species of three genera: Belisana babensis sp.Nov, Pholcus bifidus sp.
Revision and cladistic analysis of the spider genus Carapoia González-Sponga (Araneae:Pholcidae), with descriptions of new species from Brazil's Atlantic forest

  • 2005
TLDR
The pholcid genus Carapoia is revised and interspecific relationships are analysed cladistically, revealing a biogeographic split between a northern clade (Amazon, Venezuela, Guyana) and a southern clade(s) (Brazilian Atlantic forest).
First records of Spermophora kerinci , Nesticella mogera and Pseudanapis aloha on the European Mainland (Araneae: Pholcidae, Nesticidae, Anapidae)
The alien spider species Spermophora kerinci Huber, 2005, Nesticella mogera (Yaginuma, 1972) and Pseudanapis aloha Forster, 1959 are recorded from greenhouses in Germany. These are the first records
Taxonomical Study of Spiders (Order, Araneae) from Different Localities of Iraq
TLDR
This study represents the first molecular and morphological work on spiders of Iraq with specimens collected from different localities in seven provinces during June 2018-July 2019 in different climate conditions and identified eight families representing 17 genera and nine species.
New Faunistic Records of Spiders (Arachnida: Araneae) From Dobruja (Romania and Bulgaria)
Abstract A number of spider species were collected in 2011 and 2012 in various microhabitats in and around the village Letea (the Danube Delta, Romania) and on the Bulgarian Dobruja Black Sea coast.

TLDR
This analysis suggests that the two highly diverse genera (Wugigarra, Trichocyclus) are most closely related to New World, African, and Middle Eastern genera.
Cladistic analysis of Malagasy pholcid spiders reveals generic level endemism: Revision of Zatavua n. gen. and Paramicromerys Millot (Pholcidae, Araneae)
TLDR
The six-eyed pholcid spiders of Madagascar are revised and Zatavua is seen as the sister clade of all otherpholcines, whereas Paramicromerys is more distal and more closely related to (currently misplaced) ‘Spermophora’ species from East Africa and the Comoros.
Southern African pholcid spiders: revision and cladistic analysis of Quamtana gen. nov. and Spermophora Hentz (Araneae: Pholcidae), with notes on male - female covariation
The southern African pholcid spiders previously assigned to Pholcus and Spermophora are revised and their phylogenetic position within Pholcidae is analysed cladistically. Two distinct groups are
NEW WORLD PHOLCID SPIDERS (ARANEAE: PHOLCIDAE): A REVISION AT GENERIC LEVEL
TLDR
New World pholcids are revised at the generic level, with an emphasis on South America, and are strongly supported as a monophyletic group.
Functional Morphology of the Genitalia in the Spider Spermophora senoculata (Pholcidae, Araneae)
TLDR
The rhythmical deformations of the female opisthosoma by the male palp agree with predictions from the hypothesis of genitalic evolution by sexual selection, and the complexity and interspecific variability of female internal genital morphology support the idea that previous models of sperm precedence patterns in spiders are overly simplistic.
