Works on Neotropical Laniatores   ( Agoristenidae   , Biantidae   , Cosmetidae   , Cranaidae   , Fissiphalliidae   , Gonyleptidae   , Stygnidae   , Stygnopsidae   ) continued its steady stream, either with description of isolated species (Alegre-B. & Armas 2012; Bragagnolo 2013; Cruz-López & Francke 2012; 2013; DaSilva & Pintoda-Rocha 2012; Kury 2013; Kury & Ferreira 2012; Mendes & Barros 2013; Ochoa & Pinto-da-Rocha 2013; Silva et al. 2013; Villarreal-M. & Kury 2012) of with new assignments (Pinto-da-Rocha et al. 2012) or generic reviews ( Bragagnolo & Pinto-da-Rocha 2012; Kury 2012a; Kury 2012b; Pinto-da-Rocha & Tourinho 2012). Isolated species of Indo-Malayan Laniatores   ( Epedanidae   , Podoctidae   , Zalmoxidae   ) were described from China ( Zhang & Zhang 2012b; Zhang et al. 2013) and Philippines ( Sharma et al. 2012). In Australasia there have been few species descriptions ( Zalmoxidae, Sharma 2012   ). The Afrotropical realm was almost abandoned in the last biennium (exception: Mendes & Kury 2012, who described Triaenonychidae   from Madagascar). A new subfamily of Agoristenidae   has been described from the Andes ( Kury 2012b). The total of 4129 extant species of Laniatores   ( Kury 2011) has increased to 4183, or 52 species, 1%.
