Type species. Oedignatha scrobiculata Thorell 1881 , by original designation.

Embolus of male palp thread-like, conductor sclerotized, and tegular apophysis lanceolate and membranous. Epigynum usually with a posterior window membranous area, connecting duct short or absent ( Deeleman-Reinhold 2001).
