Rilaena Šilhavý, 1965 is a genus of Phalangiinae or Eurasia with 16 species.

Type speciesEdit

Rilaena balcanica Šilhavý, 1965, by original designation.

SynonymyEdit

Platybunus (Paraplatybunus) Dumitrescu, 1970: 88 [junior subjective synonym of Rilaena Šilhavý, 1965 by Staręga (1973a); type species: Opilio triangularis Herbst, 1799].

PlacementEdit

Originally in Dentizacheinae. Removed to Phalangiinae by Staręga (1973a).

“[Paraplatybunus] Described as subgenus of Platybunus and never elevated prior to synonymy under Rilaena. Junior subjective synonym of Rilaena Silhavy, 1965: by Staręga (1973a: 143) and Martens (1978: 287). I consider this synonymy dubious. Staręga (1976b) placed the type species of Rilaena in Phalangiinae; if this proves to be correct, then Paraplatybunus must be distinct, for its type species clearly belongs to Platybuninae. The juvenile palps (simplified in adults) and adult genital morphology are close to the platybunine genera Megabunus and Metaplatybunus.” [[[Crawford]] 1992].
