Four species of Corythalia C.L.Koch 1851 were reported by Richman & Cutler (1978) to occur in North America north of Mexico. Subsequently, one of these four species, C. delicatula Gertsch & Mulaik 1936, was synonymized with Euophrys diminuta (Banks 1896) (Edwards 1980). Of the three remaining species, only two species can validly be placed in the genus. These are C. conspecta (Peckham & Peckham 1896) and C. opirna (Peckham & Peckham 1885), the northernmost species in the genus, both with reported distributions ranging from Central America to Arizona.
