A new genus, Hexapopha, is described for a group of species from Costa Rica that resemble those of Coxapopha Platnick in having an elevated carapace and heavily sclerotized, highly modified male endites but differ in retaining six eyes, lacking leg spines, and having no female genitalic scape. Xestaspis reimoseri Fage is transferred to Hexapopha as the type species, its female is described for the first time, and three new species (H. hone, H. jimenez, and H. osa) are described. Dysderina caeca Birabén, from Argentina, is transferred to Coxapopha.
