"A revision of the genus Eperigone is reported. E. albula Zorsch and Crosby is removed from the genus, and the following synonyms are proposed: Eperigone antillana Bryant = E. serrate Ivie and Barrows; E. banksi Ivie and Barrows = E. fradeorum (Berland); E. credula Gertsch and Davis = E. bryantae Ivie and Barrows; E. lyra Chamberlin and Ivie = E. bryantae; E. simplex (Emerton) (junior homonym) = E. bryantae; E. simplicia Roewer = E. bryantae. The known species from North and Central America and the Caribbean area are 68 in number, including the following 41 new taxa: E. avia, E. caelebs, E. cognata, E. colima, E. comes, E. conexa, E. dominica, E. estrellae, E. faceta, E. florida, E. formosa, E. fracta, E. fusca, E. hospita, E. ignobilis, E. imago, E. leonina, E. libana, E. madera, E. major, E. media, E. mediocris, E. mera, E. modica, E. montana, E. monticola, E. morata, E. orba, E. ornata, E. paludosa, E. paula, E. perplexa, E. persimilis, E. pinicola, E. proba, E. singularis, E. sodalis, E. sola, E. solita, E. subantillana, and E. tibialis. The genitalic structures indicate that Eperigone and Erigone are closely related, and that Annapolis probably falls in the same group. Eperigone appears to be endemic to the North American continent, but there has been limited dispersal to other regions. Descriptions, diagnoses, and distributions are given for each species"--P.[1].
