Cteniogaster , a new genus of small ground spiders is described from Kenya and Tanzania. It encompasses seven new species, three of which are known from both sexes: C. toxarchus sp. nov., the type species, C. conviva sp. nov. and C. hexomma sp. nov. Three species are known from females only: C. lampropus sp. nov., C. sangarawe sp. nov. and C. taxorchis sp. nov. and one only from males: C. nana sp. nov. The new genus can be recognised by the presence of a posterior ventral abdominal field of…

TLDR
A cladistic analysis performed including Austrachelas and various species of the corinnid subfamilies Trachelinae, Castianeirinee, Corinninae and Phrurolithinae; and species from the Liocranidae, Gallieniellidae, Gnaphosidae and Lamponidae suggests that AustRachelas is currently misplaced.
