CAPONIIDAE  

Caponia capensis Purcell, 1904: 232   [F]

Localities in Purcell (1908) and countries: Kamaggas and Steinkopf, Little Namaqualand [ RSA].

Distribution in WSC: Mozambique, RSA.

*Actual current distribution: RSA, Nam.

Recent taxonomic treatment: Not redescribed.

Remarks: The record of C. capensis in Lessert (1936)   , a paper dealing largely with Mozambican spiders, is clearly indicated as being Lüderitzbucht [=Lüderitz] in Afrique Sud-occidentale [= Namibia], so the distribution in the WSC is erroneous. Consider- ing the relatively restricted ranges of most Caponia Simon, 1890   in South Africa (Dippenaar-Schoeman et al. 2010), even this record from Namibia may be a misidentification.

Diploglena   sp. [juveniles]: 232 [F]

Localities in Purcell (1908) and countries: Port Nolloth, Little Namaqualand [ RSA].

Distribution in WSC: n/a.

Recent taxonomic treatment: Haddad (2015).

Remark: These juveniles might belong to either D. arida Haddad, 2015   or D. karooica Haddad, 2015   , both of which occur in the extreme north-western Northern Cape in the vicinity of Port Nolloth (Haddad 2015).
