Neopilionidae Lawrence 1931

Neopilioninae Lawrence 1931: 473 (type genus Neopilio Lawrence 1931 ).

Neopilionidae Lawrence — Kauri 1961: 141–143; Šilhavý 1970: 171; Martens 1978: 55, 229; Shear 1982: 110; Hunt & Cokendolpher 1991: 138–139; Crawford 1992: 4, 9; Cokendolpher et al. 2007: 111; Cokendolpher 2007a: 121, 123.

Included taxa. Enantiobuninae Mello-Leitão 1931, Neopilio Lawrence 1931 .

Incertae sedis. Ballarrinae Hunt & Cokendolpher 1991.

Definition. Eupnoi sharing a more recent common ancestor with Neopilio australis than Phalangium opilio , Phalangium quadridentatum Cuvier 1795 (= Homalenotus quadridentatus ) or Caddo agilis .

Diagnosis. Neopilionidae can be distinguished from other families of Phalangioidea by the absence of lateral setae on the glans and by the absence of an entapophysis across the spiracle.

Description. Dorsum of opisthosoma usually coriaceous, rarely sclerotised. Glans of penis lacking lateral setae; lateral processes often present at shaft-glans junction. Spiracle lacking entapophysis, often with occluding spines. Pedipalp small, leg-like, without large spinose setae; tarsus longer than tibia.
