Type material. The original type material (most likely a female holotype; Audouin 1826: “individu femelle de grandeur naturelle”) is supposed to be lost. Since the type locality is not fixed and several Cebrennus  species occur in Egypt and Israel ( El-Hennawy 2002, Jäger 2000, Levy 1989), no neotype is designated here.

Systematic position. The affiliation to the family Sparassidae  was once recognised by Bonnet (1958), but not followed by Platnick (2000 – 2014), who used Roewer’s (1955) catalogue as base for the online version. The placement of the species in the genus Cebrennus  is supported by the clear concordance of somatic characters shown in Savigny’s plate ( Audouin 1826; Fig. 172View FIGURE 172) with other Cebrennus  species (see Jäger 2000). Species identity can only be clarified by copulatory organs. Since these are in this case not available as drawings or as from the original type material, C. clercki  comb. nov. is considered a nomen dubium.
