Holarchaea is a spider genus with only two described species as of September 2016[update], although there may be undescribed species from New Zealand. It was formerly placed as the only genus in the family Holarchaeidae, but is now placed in Anapidae by the World Spider Catalog.
Distribution and habitat
Holarchaea species are known only from the forests of Tasmania and New Zealand, where they live in microhabitats with consistently high humidity.
