Abstract: Nopyllus gen. nov. is proposed to include Apopyllus isabelae Brescovit & Lise, 1993 and Nopyllus vicente sp. nov. from southern Brazil. Nopyllus gen. nov. is close to Apodrassodes Vellard, 1924 and Apopyllus Platnick & Shadab, 1984, can be distinguished from both genera by the absence of a dorsal abdominal scutum in males, the absence of a median apophysis on bulb, the curved, narrow and reniform cymbium, and by the presence of a very conspicuous cymbial basal projection.

“…Several works have brought substantial contributions toward solving the taxonomy of Gnaphosidae, especially regarding the New World fauna (Platnick and Shadab, , , ; Platnick, ; Ferreira et al., ; Ott, , ; Ott et al., ; Jorge et al., ; Azevedo et al., ), and therefore many genera are well delimited. However, the phylogenetic relationships among gnaphosid genera remain obscure.…”

“…The recent synopsis of gnaphosid genera by Murphy (2007) expedited the discovery of some of these endemic genera from southern Brazil (e.g., Ott 2012Ott , 2014Ott & Brescovit 2012), and allowed to appreciate the regional diversity in a global perspective. Of the 14 groups of genera proposed by Murphy, only six (Zelotes, Laronius, Herpyllus, Echemus, Leptodrassex and Hemicloea groups) are well represented in South America and make the bulk of gnaphosid diversity in the region; of the remaining groups, eight are not represented in South America (except by a few, probably misplaced species of Drassodes Westring).…”
