Disclaimer. This is a work in progress, continually being developed and revised. Proposed new taxonomic names, included here are not valid unless subsequently published in accepted taxonomic papers. Note on images. This introduction to a classification includes only species defined by diagnostic illustrations in the taxonomic literature and Internet, arranged by similarities of embolus and spermophor. Images are displayed as thumbnails to save space and allow for rapid scanning of supposedly closely-related species. Thumbnails are small versions of illustrations in other parts of the monograph, where are displayed together with particulars of their sources and permissions.

This subchapter contains genera which cannot be placed in any group of genera listed in this work, because of insufficient diagnostic data: missing drawings of palps or internal structure of epigyne, or insufficient quality of that documentation. Genera are represented only by species having sufficient documentation, species without documentation, even when classified into accepted genera, are not shown. Genera without documentation are not mentioned here.
