Belongs within: Cosmetidae.

Cynorta is a diverse genus of cosmetid harvestmen found in Central and South America.

Characters (from González-Sponga 1992): Ocular tubercle elliptic, sub-elliptic or narrow; with varying intensity in the granulation. Lateral border of opisthosoma convex facing areas I to III. Areas not differentiated, tegument leathery or finely granular. Area III with or without spines or tubercles of varying thickness and height. Tergites with or without rows of granules. Distal segment of chelicerae hypertelic or normal, almost always presenting sexual dimorphism. Ambulatory legs with moderate, long, narrow femora IV, rarely presenting sexual dimorphism. Basal segments of tarsus I thickened. Tarsal segments of legs 1 = 5–6(3). Tarsal segments of legs II = 8–18(3–4). Claws not pectinated.
