Disclaimer. This is a work in progress, continually being developed and revised. Proposed taxonomic names included here are not valid unless subsequently published in accepted taxonomic papers. Note on images This introduction to a classification of Euophryinae includes only species with diagnostic illustrations in the taxonomic literature arranged by similarities of embolus and spermophor. Images are displayed as thumbnails to save space and allow for rapid scanning of theoretically closely-related species. Thumbnails are small versions of illustrations in other parts of the monograph, whera are displayed together with particulars of their sources and permissions.

Type genus Eupoa
Interactive index of genera: Eupoa

EUPOAINAE - represented here by the genus Eupoa, are minute (total length 2 mm, or less), vegetation litter dwellers. Such spiders have similar appearance on all continents, irrelevant of their relationships. Eupoa is characterized by presence of several bulbus tegular apophyses, well illustrated on electronic microscopy scans provided in excellent paper by Logunov and Marusik 2014, which shows extensive diversity of these structures. Summarizing of epigyne structure require more studies. Taking into account also broad geographical distribution, stretching from China to India and to Indonesia, one may expect high number of not yet discovered species, which may, perhaps, be split into several genera.
