Numerous new generic combinations are proposed for species whose genus has been previously synonymized. Datames magna Hancock, 1888 is proposed as the type species of Arenotherus Brookhart and Muma, which is placed as a junior synonym of Eremorhax Roewer. The type species of Paragaleodes Kraepelin, 1899 is newly designated as Galeodes scalaris C.L. Koch, 1842, and Zombis Simon, 1882 is treated as a valid genus and removed from the synonymy of Paragaleodes Kraepelin, 1899. The name Eremobates legalis, nom. nov., is proposed for the Mexican species previously known as E. geniculatus (Simon). The Mesozoic amblypygid genus Protophrynus Petrunkevitch, 1913 is replaced with Sorellophrynus. Simonoonops is proposed for the spider genus Eusimonia Dumitrescu and Georgescu, 1987 (Oonopidae) which is a junior homonym of Eusimonia Kraepelin, 1899. The spider subfamily Sternodinae is replaced with Sternoidinae, nom. nov.
