Physocyclus Simon, 1893 

Physocyclus  is a New World genus. Only the pantropical synanthropic P. globosus (Taczanowski, 1874)  occurs in Central Africa ( Fig. 30View Figs 29 - 30). It seems that this widespread species has not previously been recorded from the area considered here. Only Simon’s (1877) Pholcus claviger  (transferred and synonymzed in Huber 2011b) from “Congo” might be a previous record.
