The spider genera Pandisus Simon and Asemonea O. P.-Cambridge are revised and one new genus Goleba is proposed. All 21 known species of these genera (of which 11 are new) are described and figured. Distributional data are given and a key to the species of Pandisus and Asemonea is provided. Generic relationships within the subfamily Lyssomaninae are discussed and generic groups based on the structure of the male genitalia are proposed. The type material of 11 nominate species was examined and five lectotypes are newly designated. Four specific names are newly synonymized and three new combinations are proposed.
