Neospintharus is a genus of comb-footed spiders that was first described by H. Exline in 1950.[2] It was synonymized with Argyrodes in 1962,[3] but revalidated in 2004.[4]

As of September 2019 it contains thirteen species, found in the Caribbean, South America, Central America, Asia, Mexico, Turkey, the United States, and Canada:[1]

Neospintharus baboquivari (Exline & Levi, 1962) – USA, Mexico
Neospintharus baekamensis Seo, 2010 – Korea
Neospintharus bicornis (O. Pickard-Cambridge, 1880) – Brazil
Neospintharus concisus (Exline & Levi, 1962) – Mexico
Neospintharus fur (Bösenberg & Strand, 1906) – China, Korea, Japan
Neospintharus furcatus (O. Pickard-Cambridge, 1894) – USA to El Salvador, Caribbean
Neospintharus nipponicus (Kumada, 1990) – China, Korea, Japan
Neospintharus obscurus (Keyserling, 1884) – Peru
Neospintharus parvus Exline, 1950 (type) – Panama to Ecuador
Neospintharus rioensis (Exline & Levi, 1962) – Brazil, Argentina
Neospintharus syriacus (O. Pickard-Cambridge, 1872) – Turkey, Lebanon, Israel
Neospintharus triangularis (Taczanowski, 1873) – Panama, French Guiana
Neospintharus trigonum (Hentz, 1850) – USA, Canada

In synonymy:

N. bifissus (F. O. Pickard-Cambridge, 1902) = Neospintharus furcatus (O. Pickard-Cambridge, 1894)
N. frontatus (Banks, 1908) = Neospintharus furcatus (O. Pickard-Cambridge, 1894)
N. gansuensis (Zhu, 1998) = Neospintharus fur (Bösenberg & Strand, 1906)
N. montanus (Keyserling, 1884) = Neospintharus obscurus (Keyserling, 1884)
