Cyatholipidae is a family of spiders first described by Eugène Simon in 1894.[1] Most live in moist, montane forests, though several species, including Scharffia rossi, live in dry savannah regions. They occur in Africa, including Madagascar,[2] New Zealand and Australia, and one species (Pokennips dentipes) in Jamaica.[3] Most members of this family hang beneath sheet webs.
