Artema atlanta Walckenaer, 1837 

Artema atlanta Walckenaer, 1837: 656  . F.O. Pickard-Cambridge 1902: 366, pl. 34, figs. 15–16. Petrunkevitch 1929: 119, figs. 102–104. Chrysanthus 1967: 92, figs. 15–19. Brignoli 1981: 92, figs. 1–7. Saaristo 2001: 15, figs. 16–22.

Artema mauriciana Walckenaer, 1837: 657  . Millot 1946: 129, fig. 1. Synonymized by F.O. Pickard-Cambridge (1902).

Pholcus sisyphoides Doleschall, 1857: 408  . Synonymized by F.O. Pickard-Cambridge (1902).

Artema convexa Blackwall, 1858: 332  . Synonymized by Simon (1885).

Pholcus borbonicus Vinson, 1863: 132  . Synonymized by Simon (1885).

Pholcus rotundatus Karsch, 1879: 106  . Synonymized by Simon (1893 b).

Crossopriza sexsignata Franganillo Balboa, 1926: 49  . Synonymized by Pérez González (1996).

Coroia magna González-Sponga, 2005: 102  , pl. 2, figs. 1–11; new synonymy.

Justification of synonymy. We have not re-examined the type specimens (from Falcón State, Venezuela  ) but González-Sponga’s drawings show all the distinctive characters of this species (armature of chelicerae; shape of palp and of bulbal processes; shape of epigynal sclerites). In addition, Artema  is an Old World genus, and A. atlanta  is the only species that has attained a pantropical distribution (including numerous New World records, e.g. Walckenaer 1837; Blackwall 1858; Karsch 1879; Petrunkevitch 1929; Brignoli 1981).
