The goblin spider genus Cinetomorpha Simon is removed from the synonymy of Gamasomorpha Karsch and treated as the senior synonym of Yumates Chamberlin and Lucetia Dumitresco \& Georgesco. All 41 species occur only in the New World, and the genus is divided into four species groups: the simplex group, the puberula group, the patquiana group and the itabaiana group. The following species are transferred to Cinetomorpha: C. floridana (Banks), comb. nov., and C. sedata (Gertsch \& Mulaik), comb. nov., from Opopaea; C. angela (Chamberlin), comb. nov., and C. nesophila (Chamberlin), comb. nov., from Yumates; and C. patquiana (Biraben) and C. platensis (Biraben), comb. nov., from Gamasomorpha. Gamasomorpha wasmanniae Mello-Leitao and Lucetia distincta Dumitresco \& Georgesco are newly synonymized with C. simplex Simon. Two species currently in Gamasomorpha are transferred to Hexapopha Platnick \& Berniker: H. brasiliana (Bristowe), comb. nov. and H. m-scripta (Biraben), comb. nov. The following 31 species are newly described: C. adaga Ott \& Bonaldo (Brazil, Colombia, Ecuador and Peru); C. atlantica Ott \& Brescovit (Brazil); C. baja Ott \& Ubick (Mexico); C. bandolera Ott \& Harvey (Mexico \& USA); C. boraceia Ott \& Brescovit (Argentina and Brazil); C. campana Ott \& Harvey (Chile); C. central Ott \& Brescovit (Brazil); C. chicote Ott \& Bonaldo (Brazil, Colombia, Ecuador and Peru); C. concepcion Ott \& Harvey (Chile); C. iguazu Ott \& Brescovit (Argentina and Brazil); C. itabaiana Ott \& Brescovit (Brazil); C. laguna Ott \& Ubick (Mexico); C. lavras Ott \& Brescovit (Brazil); C. longisetosa Ott \& Harvey (Costa Rica and Brazil); C. lorenzo Ott \& Harvey (Guatemala); C. loreto Ott \& Bonaldo (Peru); C. nayarit Ott \& Harvey (Mexico); C. orellana Ott \& Bonaldo (Ecuador); C. pauferro Ott \& Brescovit (Brazil); C. peluda Ott \& Harvey (Chile); C. pinheiral Ott \& Brescovit (Brazil); C. pocone Ott \& Brescovit (Brazil); C. punctata Ott \& Brescovit (Brazil); C. quillota Ott \& Harvey (Chile); C. rinconada Ott \& Harvey (Chile); C. santamaria Ott \& Brescovit (Argentina); C. similis Ott \& Brescovit (Brazil); C. sternalis Ott \& Bonaldo (Brazil); C. sur Ott \& Ubick (Mexico); C. waorani Ott \& Bonaldo (Ecuador); and C. zero Ott \& Harvey (Mexico to Venezuela).
