  Gen. Chira Peckham et Peckham, 1896

type: designata = trivittata

C.: Simon 1903a: 755.

NB.: Brignoli 1983: 634 considers "Shira" a lapsus. Platnick, following Roewer, proposed to return to the original Shira; Galiano in turn addressed the International Commission on Zoological Nomenclature for preservation of the name Chira Peckham, 1896 (M. E. Galiano 1989c. Bull. Zool. Nomen. 46(2): 106, Case 2656) and "thus the spelling Chira is to be used until or unless the Commission rejects the proposal" (Platnick 2006). The Comission on Zool. Nomenclature failed yet to announce verdict in this matter - J. Proszynski
