Walckenaeria is a genus of spiders in the Linyphiidae family. It was first described in 1833 by Blackwall. As of 2017, it contains 198 species.[1] Some males in this group have eyes set up on mounds or turrets. This can reach extremes in some members of Walckenaeria, where several of the male's eyes are placed on a stalk taller than the carapace.
