Prionolaema aetherea Simon, 1894 a: 725  .

P. a. Simon, 1895g: 150.

Types. Subadult male holotype from Venezuela, collected in Tovar ( MNHN 10128, examined).

Justification of the transfer: The type specimen of this species is a subadult male which makes impossible the study of the adult palpal morphology ( Fig. 2View FIGURE 2 A –B). However, based on general somatic morphology (eyes distribution, abdomen shape, cheliceral shape and lack of feathered trichobothria on femora IV) this specimen should be placed in the genus Tetragnatha  .
