The Cyatholipidae are a spider family with 58 described species in 23 genera.

Contents

They were discovered in the late 19th century in Africa. Cyatholipidae live mostly in moist, montane forests. Certain species, such as Scharffia rossi, however, live in dry regions, such as savannah.

Most members of this family hang beneath sheet webs.

Distribution

Most species occur in Africa (with Madagascar), several in New Zealand and Australia, and one species (Pokennips dentipes) in Jamaica.
