Synonymy Sars (1862) placed his genus Oniscosoma as a synonym of Spinther. He also stated that Cryptonota Stimpson was the same as his Oniscosoma. This early synonymising of the two other genera in Spintheridae may have been previously overlooked. Rouse & Pleijel (2001:180) helpfully further discuss & summarise the nomenclatural history [details]
