Pseudosparianthis cubana moved to Decaphora

Just an FYI that a new paper transferred the introduced (to Florida) Pseudosparianthis cubana, Sparassidae, to the genus Decaphora (1). I moved everything in the Guide already, but just thought I'd leave a note here, too.

Looks like -
this change has already been incorporated into the World Spider Catalog, so it's fine with me. Thanks for taking care of this.

I actually left a note on both the genus and species pages that the World Spider Catalog was not yet reflecting it and that version 15 would show it... but, just yesterday, version 15 came out, so I deleted those comments since it's now "official." (Prior to that, from Jeff Hollenbecks's submissions and info, we knew the species was introduced to FL, but for years it was not reflected on the WSC as being found in the USA.. so this new paper on Decaphora resolved all that.)
