Diversity
36 genera, 187 species

The Amphinectidae are a spider family with about 180 described species in 35 genera.

The family Neolanidae, with its only genus Neolana, was merged into this family in 2005[1].

Contents

Distribution

This family is almost exclusively confined to New Zealand and the Australian region, with only Metaltella found in South America from Argentina to Brazil, and Calacadia in Chile.

Metaltella simoni has been introduced in a large part of the Southern United States (records exist from California, Louisiana, Mississippi and Florida) and is considered an invasive species in Florida. It is feared that it could extirpate the native titanoecid species Titanoeca brunnea.
