"Lygromma" is a spider genus of Central and South America. There are species with eight, six (eg., "L. senoculatum", "L. valencianum") and no eyes. The eyeless "L. anops" is endemic to Galapagos, while the not closely related blind "L. gertschi" is found only on Jamaica.

The Mexican genus "Tivodrassus", and "Tricongius" have been suggested as sister groups of "Lygromma".

Species reach a body length from about 2 to 4.6 mm.
