Emertonella emertoni (Bryant, 1933) (type) – USA, Mexico
Emertonella hainanica Barrion, Barrion-Dupo & Heong, 2013 – China
Emertonella serrulata Gao & Li, 2014 – China
Emertonella taczanowskii (Keyserling, 1886) – USA to Argentina. Introduced to India, Sri Lanka, China, Japan (Ryukyu Is.), New Guinea
Emertonella trachypa Gao & Li, 2014 – China
