Pisauridae Simon, 1890: 80   . Dippenaar-Schoeman & Jocqué, 1997: 250. Jocqué & Dippenaar-Schoeman, 2006: 212. Vink & Dupérré 2010: 9.

Type genus. Pisaura Simon 1885  

. Diagnosis. The family Pisauridae   can be distinguished from both Trechaleidae   and Lycosidae   by the combination of the following characters: the nursery web that the female produces surrounding the egg sac, and the egg sac carried by the chelicerae ( Zhang et al., 2004), but these behaviors can also be observed in the representatives of Ancylometes Bertkau, 1880   ( Santos, 2007a). It also differs from Trechaleidae   in the median apophysis of the male palpus, which is neither large nor distally situated, and lacking a dorsal embolic groove that extends distally into an apical groove and the absence of a ‘‘skirt’’ on the seam of the discoid egg sac ( Carico 1993: 230, fig. 6). It can be distinguished from Lycosidae   by the posterior eye row not strongly recurved, and the male palpus usually with a retrolateral tibial apophysis ( Zhang et al., 2004). The presence of the distal tegular projection (DTP) and the presence of a tarsal apical pseudosegment could represent possible synapomorphies of Pisauridae   , pointed out by Santos (2007a), but the latter is also found in Trechaleidae   .
