The families Licnodamaeidae and Licnobelbi ee are recharacterized. Licnodamaeidae includes the sole genus Licnodamaeus Grandjean, with the species: undulatus (Paoli), pulcherrimus (Paoli) and costula Grandjean, all from Europe; the gen b Licnocepheus Woolley is removed from the family Licnodamaeidae. Licnobelbidae includes also one single genus: Licnobelba Grandjean, with the species: alestensis Grandjean, caesarea (Berlese) and montana Mihelcic, all from Europe. Licnodamaeus granulatus Balogh & Csiszár) (Argentina), Licneremaeus latiflabellatus Paoli and Licneremaeus tuberculatus Paoli (both from taly) are considered incertae sedis.
