dc.description.abstract "Mysmenopsis is redefined to include those mysmenids with cusps on the male palpal tibia, and a key to the New World genera of Mysmenidae is presented. The genus Lucarachne Bryant is newly synonymized with Mysmenopsis. A key, diagnoses, supplementary illustrations, and a cladogram are provided for the 17 known species, found from Mexico, Florida, and the West Indies south to Peru and Brazil. Five species are reported to be kleptoparasites living on the webs of diplurid spiders. Eight new species are described: M. ischnamigo from Panama and Trinidad, M. dipluramigo and M. gamboa from Panama, M. kochalkai from Colombia, M. penai from Ecuador, M. archeri from Brazil, and M. wygondzinskyi and M. schlingeri from Peru. The females of M. cidrelicola (Simon) and M. beebei (Gertsch) are described for the first time"--P. [1]. en_US
