We propose a phylogeny for all entelegyne families with cribellate members based on a matrix of 137 characters scored for 43 exemplar taxa and analyzed under parsimony. The cladogram confirms the monophyly of Neocribellatae, Araneoclada, Entelegynae, and Orbiculariae. Lycosoidea, Amaurobiidae and some included subfamilies, Dictynoidea, and Amaurobioidea (sensu Forster & Wilton 1973) are polyphyletic. Phyxelidinae Lehtinen is raised to family level (Phyxelididae, NEW RANK). The family…

The lace web spiders (Araneae, Phyxelididae) of Madagascar: phylogeny, biogeography and taxonomy
TLDR
These analyses suggest that there are 14 species of Phyxelididae that may be recognized from Madagascar, that these may be divided into three genera, and that the Malagasy phyxelids form a monophyletic group, probably resulting from a single invasion of the island by an ancestor from Africa.
Phylogeny and taxonomy of thegenera of south-western North American Euctenizinae trapdoor spiders and their relatives (Araneae: Mygalomorphae, Cyrtaucheniidae)
TLDR
Using 71morphological characters scored for 29 mygalomorph taxa, cladistic analysis shows that Cyrtaucheniidae is likely paraphyletic with respect to the Domiothelina, the clade that comprises the Migidae,Actinopodidae, Ctenizidae, and Idiopidae.
The Morphology And Phylogeny Of Dionychan Spiders (Araneae: Araneomorphae)
TLDR
A phylogenetic analysis of the two-clawed spiders grouped in Dionycha is presented, with 166 representative species of 49 araneomorph families, scored for 393 characters documented through standardized imaging protocols, and a revision of the main morphological character systems.
Phylogeny of Symphytognathidae s.l. (Araneae, Araneoidea)
TLDR
A phylogenetic analysis of Symphytognathidae sensu lato (=sensu Forster 1959): Anapidae, Micropholcommatidae, Mysmenidae and SymphyTognathids sensu stricto is presented, finding that the latter is probably monophyletic and should be relimited by transferring four Old World genera to a new family, Synaphridae.
Taxonomic revision of the spider family Penestomidae (Araneae, Entelegynae)
TLDR
A complementary taxonomic revision of the Penestomidae is presented here, and the genus Wajane Lehtinen, 1967 is here synonymized withPenestomus New synonymy.
Phylogeny of extant nephilid orb‐weaving spiders (Araneae, Nephilidae): testing morphological and ethological homologies
TLDR
This work synthesizes the available data for the genera Nephila, Nephilengys, Herennia and Clitaetra to produce the first species level phylogeny of the Nephilidae, finding that nephilid genital morphologies coevolve with sexual behaviors and extreme sexual size dimorphism.
A new genus and species of plsauridae (araneae) in cretaceous Burmese amber
Synopsis The oldest pisaurid spider Palaeohygropoda myanmarensis gen. et sp. nov. (Araneae: Pisauridae) is described from 100–107 Mya (Albian) Cretaceous amber (Burmite) from Myanmar (Burma). This
HIGHER-LEVEL RELATIONSHIPS OF THE SPIDER FAMILY CTENIDAE (ARANEAE: CTENOIDEA)
TLDR
A cladistic analysis based on parsimony concludes that Ctenidae is shown to be polyphyletic as currently delimited, but the most severely questioned taxa (i.e., Acanthoctenus, Cupiennius, and Ancylometes) are indeed members of this family.
The velvet spiders: an atlas of the Eresidae (Arachnida, Araneae)
TLDR
A new phylogeny of Eresidae based on molecular sequence data expands on a previously published analysis and a species of the genus Paradonea Lawrence, 1968 is sequenced and placed phylogenetically for the first time.

Investigations into the phylogeny of the Lycosoid spiders and their kin (Arachnida: Araneae, Lycosoidea)
TLDR
The phylogenetic relationships of spider families classically placed in the superfamily Lycosoidea, which possess a grate-shaped tapetum in some or all of the indirect eyes, are examined through exemplar taxa scored for 68 classical or newly elaborated characters.
Spinneret Silk Spigot Morphology: Evidence for the Monophyly of Orbweaving Spiders, Cyrtophorinae (Araneidae), and the Group Theridiidae Plus Nesticidae
TLDR
Evidence from scanning electron micrographs supports the monophyly of orbweavers (Orbiculariae Uloboridae, Deinopidae, Araneoidea), the araneid subfamily Cyrtophorinae and the close relationship between Nesticidae and Theridiidae.
A phylogenetic analysis of the orb-weaving spider family Araneidae (Arachnida, Araneae)
TLDR
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.
Phylogeny of the orb-web building spiders (Araneae, Orbiculariae: Deinopoidea, Araneoidea)
TLDR
While the spinning complement of single pairs of glands does not change much over the evolution of the group, multiple sets of glands are dramatically reduced in number, implying that derived araneoids are incapable of spinning many silk fibers at the same time.
Cladistics and Spider Classification: Araneomorph Phylogeny and the Monophyly of Orbweavers (Araneae: Araneomorphae, Orbiculariae)
TLDR
An hypothesis of cladistic structure within Araneomorphae in the form of a quantitatively analysed cladogram is presented for the first time and supports orb weaving spiders as a monophyletic group and Linyphiidae as an araneoid family.
Ontogeny and Homology in the Male Palpus of Orb Weaving Spiders and their Relatives, with Comments on Phylogeny (Araneoclada: Araneoidea, Deinopoidea)
TLDR
This paper discusses Ontogeny and homology in the male palpus of orb-weaving spiders and their relatives, with comments on phylogeny in the Araneoclada: Araneoidea, DeinopoideA / Jonathan A. Coddington.
The hypochiloid spiders : a cladistic analysis, with notes on the Atypoidea (Arachnida, Araneae). American Museum novitates ; no. 2627
TLDR
Serrula morphology suggests that the superfamily Atypoidea is not monophyletic and that the Mecicobothriidae are more closely related to the Dipluridae than to the Antrodiaetidae or Atypidae.
The Monophyletic Origin of the Orb Web
TLDR
Two groups of spiders spin orb webs: the cnbellate Ulobondae, weavers of calamistrated sticky silk, and the ecribellate Araneidae, weaver of true viscid silk, yet both groups spin very similar orb webs.
Systematics and Evolution of Spiders (Araneae)
TLDR
This brief review of taxonomic and phylogenetic knowledge of Araneae suggests where future efforts might profitably be concentrated.
