Characteristics

The New World clade includes a quite heterogeneous group of pholcid genera; all of them, as the name of the clade indicates, are known from the New World. Spiders in this group also share some morphological synapomorphies such as the exposed tarsal organ, male palpal coxa with a retrolateral apophysis, large distance between the posterior median and the anterior lateral eyes, male gonopore without epiandrous spigots and anterior lateral spigots with only one piriform gland each.
