Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorNomenclature Erected for Pholoides, now in Sigalionidae. Fauchald (1977) included Pholoe in Sigalionidae. Hence Pholoididae [new name] was based on Pholoides, as Peisidicidae was invalid on synonymy of Peisidice Johnson 1897 into Pholoides Pruvot, 1895. [details]
