dc.description.abstract The spider families Tetrablemmidae and Pacullidae are surveyed, and their relationships assessed. At present it is unclear whether the families are closest to the 'dysderoids' or to the 'scytodoids'; much more morphological and taxonomic data are needed on these putative superfamilies of spiders. The following species are described as new: Tetrablemma extorris, Monoblemma browni, M. muchmorei, Matta mckenziei, M. atoma, Ablemma berryi, A. aiyura, A. sedgwicki, Singaporemma singularis, Brignoliella beattyi, B. sarawak, Paculla kraui, P. cameronensis, and P. negara. Singaporemma is established as a new genus based on S. singularis, and Fallablemma as a new genus based on Hexablemma castaneum. The genus Hexablemma Berland is considered a synonym of Tetrablemma. The new name Brignoliella is provided for the preoccupied Polyaspis Simon. Tetrablemmidae is divided into two subfamilies: Tetrablemminae O.P.-Cambridge and Brignoliellinae, new. Diblemma O. Pickard-Cambridge is considered a synonym of Opopaea (Oonopidae), and Gossiblemma yapensis Roewer a synonym of Pseudanapis aloha Forster (Anapidae)"--P. [1]. en_US
