The Lamponidae are a spider family with about 200 described species in 23 genera.

Distribution

Species from this family are generally endemic to Australia, with the genus Centrocalia endemic to New Caledonia, and two Lampona species (L. cylindrata, L. murina) also occurring in New Zealand where it is commonly known as the "White Tail" spider. Lampona papua is endemic to New Guinea, where two otherwise Australian species (Centrothele mutica, Lamponova wau) also occur.

Genera

The categorization into subfamilies follows Joel Hallan's Biology Catalog.
