quote below from: Makhan, D.; Ezzatpanah, S. 2011: A new spider family,
Hawkeswoodidae fam. nov. and Amrishoonops amrishi gen. et sp. nov. (Araneae)
from Suriname. Calodema, 136: 1-5.

'Hawkeswoodidae Makhan & Ezzatpanah, fam. nov.
Type genus: Amrishoonops Makhan & Ezzatpanah, gen. nov.Description: Small
species, body length 1-5 mm. Head with 6 eyes. Last segment of palp small with
sclerites, basal segment toothless, other segments with teeth-like segments and
setae. Legs long, spines absent,
with setae. Carapace with large teeth-like projections on anterior side. Abdomen
with fine teeth-like projections
on anterior side, with setae.Etymology: This family is named after the famous
biologist from Australia, Dr Trevor John
Hawkeswood (1956- ), one of the world’s greatest natural historians, who has
published more
than 400 scientific papers in botany, entomology and in many other areas of
biological science
in Australian and international journals. Hawkeswood has also published an
attractive and
informative book on Australian spiders as well as a book on the Coleoptera of
Australia and
has also produced the scientific journals
discovered numerous plants and insects new to science, most of which he has
described. His
work has been cited in
biological journals of the world (see www.calodema.com)'

unfortunately for these guys, Hawkeswoodidae was proposed with Amrishoonops as
type genus! As it is not formed from the stem of an available generic name, it
is not available ...

... what can I say?
