dc.description.abstract "Crossopriza Simon, 1893 (Pholcidae) is a predominantly Old World spider genus with only a few records from the New World. The present paper reevaluates the New World records, and shows that C. lyoni (Blackwall, 1867), a synanthropic spider, has been recorded under several different names in various parts of the world and is the only unequivocal species in the New World. New junior synonyms of C. lyoni are C. brasiliensis Mello-Leitão, 1935, from Brazil; C. mucronata Mello-Leitão, 1942, from Argentina; and C. francoisi Millot, 1946, and C. stridulans Millot, 1946, from Madagascar. We present a detailed redescription and several new records for C. lyoni. The Argentine C. saltensis Mello-Leitão, 1941, is newly synonymized with Priscula binghamae (Chamberlin, 1916)"--P.
