Distribution.zoridae.1.png

The Zorinae are a spider subfamily of the Miturgidae Ramírez (2014)[1] with more than 70 described species in 13 genera.

Spiders in this family hunt without webs.

It is very hard to determine species without high quality images of the genitalia.

Distribution[edit]

Most species occur in the tropics (South America, Australia, Africa, Asia). The species Israzorides judaeus is endemic to Israel, and several species of the genus Zora can be found in colder climates, including the U.S. and Europe up to Sweden.
