Remarks. Because of the general similarity in palp morphology and the presence of distinctive white striae on the posterior surface of the cephalothorax, specimens of this group of tiny litter living spiders are usually to be found in unsorted Clynotis  collections. Specimens of the group can usually be quickly identified by their small size, the completely flat and frosted appearance of the dorsal surface of the cephalothorax, which is also U-shaped with a flat front. The males also have a very well-developed white clypeal ‘moustache’. No new species of members of this group are described here, though, since its description, occasional specimens of several species from different parts of Australia have been found (author unpubl., R.J. Whyte, pers. com.). For a detailed description of Pungalina weiri  , see Richardson (2013).
