Mysmenidae is a spider family with about 135 described species in around 13 genera. The family is one of the least well known of the orb-weaving spiders because of their small size (0.76 to 3 mm (0.03 to 0.12 in)) and cryptic behaviour. These spiders are found in humid habitats such as among leaf litter and in caves.
Species occur in the Americas, Africa, Asia, Europe, New Guinea and several islands.
