PlacementEdit

Originally placed in Gonyleptidae, Stygninae, was moved By Roewer (1913) to the new subfamily Stenostygninae. After that, Sørensen (1932) included Stenostygninae within Stygnidae. Pinto-da-Rocha (1995) studied the male genitalia and finally determined that it belongs to Biantidae, Stenostygninae.
