Liocranidae Simon 1897


Liocranidae Simon 1897 

Only few specimens of this family were collected so far from Laos. Among these are a juvenile from Thakek  ( L 34) belonging to the monotypic genus Pranburia  Deeleman- Reinhold 1993 and a female of Orthobula Simon 1897  collected in Muang Sing ( L 3).

N.B.: The genera mentioned above belong to the subfamily Phrurolithinae, which is placed by Deeleman-Reinhold (2001) and Platnick (2006) in the Liocranidae  . Other authors transfer this subfamily to the Corinnidae  ( Bosselaers & Jocque 2002, Wunderlich pers. comm.).
