These Tarantula spiders can be categorized under the Eumenophorinae subfamily (family Theraphosidae). Species belonging to these genera have been spotted in various locations across Madagascar, the southern coast of the Arabian Peninsula, and various states in India. Several molecular phylogenetic analyses support the idea that the Eumenophorinae are a single, unified group. However, these have only represented a small fraction of the total number of taxa that have been assigned to this subfamily. Both Anoploscelus and Phoneyusa were part of a research effort in 2014. The 2018 research featured Hysterocrates, Monocentropus, and Pelinobius.
