IntroductionDendryphantines characterized by unusual chelicerae with a very stout fang and a keel along the medial margin. Typically uniform colored, from gray or green to black, though T. harti is often mottled. Some species have a prominent V-shaped tuft of black hairs above anterior eye row. Some species, esp. T. formicaria, are reasonably antlike. Probably all specialize on eating ants. A closely related genus is Poultonella. The two share the unusual chelicerae.
