Brattia species (Linyphiidae) from Africa and the Philippines are not congeneric with the type species of Brattia. The type species of the genus, Brattia spadicaria Simon, and other Neotropical Brattia species were recently transferred to Sphecozone O. Pickard-Cambridge; Old World Brattia species were explicitly excluded from Sphecozone. Sphecozone spadicaria and Old World Brattia species are redescribed and illustrated. Brattia africana Simon is transferred to Pachydelphus Jocqué & Bosmans; B. scutilla is transferred to Apobrata new genus; B. dubia is transferred to the theridiid genus Anelosimus Simon.
