Lasaeola is a genus of comb-footed spiders that was first described by Eugène Louis Simon in 1881.[3] The type species was described under the name Pachydactylus pronus,[4] but was renamed Lasaeola prona when it was discovered that the name "Pachydactylus" was preoccupied.[3] Both this genus and Deliana were removed from the synonymy of Dipoena in 1988,[5] but many of these species require more study before their placement is certain.[1]

As of September 2019 it contains twenty-four species and one subspecies, found in the Americas, Europe, and Asia:[1]

Lasaeola algarvensis Wunderlich, 2011 – Portugal

In synonymy:

L. daltoni (Levi, 1953, T from Dipoena) = Lasaeola atopa (Chamberlin, 1949)
L. hamata (Tullgren, 1949, T from Dipoena) = Lasaeola prona (Menge, 1868)
L. tibiale (Hahn, 1831, T from Theridion sub nomen dubium) = Lasaeola tristis (Hahn, 1833)
L. trapezoidalis (Levy & Amitai, 1981, T from Dipoena) = Lasaeola convexa (Blackwall, 1870)
