dc.description.abstract "The spider genus Platyoides O.P.-Cambridge, previously placed with the hemicloeine gnaphosoids, is assigned to the family Trochanteriidae Karsch on the basis of the elongated fourth trochanters and laterally divergent chelicerae. The 14 known species are diagnosed, described, and illustrated. Nine specific names are newly synonymized: P. abrahami O.P.-Cambridge, P. bottegi Pavesi, P. laterigradus Pocock, P. separatus O.P.-Cambridge, P. simoni O.P.-Cambridge, and P. bidentifer Strand, all with P. walteri (Karsch); P. beta Lawrence with P. alpha Lawrence; P. pusilliformis Tucker with P. pusillus Pocock; and P. lawrencei Lessert with P. leppanae Pocock. The males of P. pusillus Pocock and P. grandidieri Simon are described for the first time. Five new species are described: P. rossi and P. pirie from South Africa, P. velonus and P. mailaka from Madagascar, and P. venturus from the Canary Islands"--P. [1]. en_US
