As discussed by Brignoli (1971a) and Bolzern et al. (2010), this species is most closely related to species referred to Pseudotegenaria by Lehtinen (1967) (here referred to as the annulata-complex, together with Teg. animata, Teg. bayeri, Teg. bosnica, and Teg. decolorata) and to Teg. tridentina (see Simon, 1937). This relationship is based on morphology and for Teg. tridentina also on DNA.
