Genera moved ...

"Wheeler et al., 2017"(1) ... moved from Dictynidae Cicurina is now in Hahniidae and Yorima is now in Cybaeidae. Moved from Hahniidae ... Blabomma, Calymmaria, Cryphoeca, Dirksia, and Ethobuella are now in Cybaeidae. Metaltella moved to Desidae. There are other changes made in the paper but these are the ones I see that affect the placement of things that are already in the Guide. I'm using the latest updates on the World Spider Catalog to determine what needs to be moved and more were added this morning, I don't know if I'm quite done yet. Edit: Also I should probably mention I didn't forget to update the info pages it's just time consuming and I'm working on getting that done. If anyone else wants to update the numbers and species for some of them just let me know so we don't try to update the same page at the same time.

We seem to remember that when this was discussed earlier
people decided to wait until the changes showed up in the World Spider Catalog. Can't find that discussion - must have made it up!

That is what I ...
decided to do. I think I said it but can't find that piece of the conversation either. :)
