Introduction

DIAGNOSIS. HYLLINES are recognizable by thin embolus initially arising perpendicular to bulbus and almost immediately bending parallel to it, leaving initially some free space, next paralleling margin of bulbus, or encircling it entirely. Spermophor prominent, running along contour of bulbus, differs from that of SITTICINES by absence of central loop. Internal structures of epigyne (see illustrations below) variable, characterize particular genera but not the whole group of genera. Diagnostic drawings below are integral part of definition.

Gen. Abracadabrella Żabka, 1991 (3 species)

Type species Abracadabrella elegans.
DIAGNOSIS. Copulatory ducts arising from posterior openings, running up to anterior part of epigyne, "S" shape bent, then double back and join spermathecae, set transversally in the middle of epigyne. Spermathecae oval, with their distal part narrowed in a form of bent process. Diagnostic drawings below are integral part of definition.

Gen. Afrobeata Caporiacco, 1941 (3 species)

Type species Afrobeata latithorax.
DIAGNOSIS. Epigyne with middle elongate depression and posterior pockets. Internal structures unusual in having ducts thin but sclerotized and long, making complicated coils before joining small, globular spermathecae, located anteriorly to them. Bulbus long, encircled tightly by very thin, hairlike embolus. Diagnostic drawings below are integral part of definition.

Gen. Brancus Simon, 1902 (15 species)

Type species Brancus muticus.
DIAGNOSIS. Bulbus with small, triangular flap, usually round or near round, tibial apophysis short. Epigyne with anterior depression, sometimes partially divided by arches associated with copulatory openings. Copulatory ducts simple, spermathecae oval, or bent. Diagnostic drawings below are integral part of definition.
REMARKS. African genus resembling Asian Telamonia by palp appearance, especially presence of a flap on bulbus, but differs by absence of retrolateral expansion of cymbium's edge and characteristic bunch of long, stiff setae in that place, there are striking differences in internal structure of epigyne.

Gen. Cosmophasis Simon, 1901
[SEE ALSO IN THE GROUP OF GENERA "ICIINES" ]

ATTENTION: Cosmophasis is a popular genus in Eastern Hemisphere tropics, recognizable in the field by irridescent light reflecting body (due to transparent scale coverage) and bright color patter. However there are several groups of species, differing strikingly by shape of palps and spermathecae. These group deserve separate genus status. The name "Cosmophasis" should be restricted to the C. bitaeniatus group, because of classification of the true C. thalassina - the type species.
Diagnostic drawings below are integral part of definition. Characters for splitting Cosmophasis into different genera - see below.

Gen.Cosmophasis [bitaeniatus group!] Simon, 1901 (18 species)

Type species Cosmophasis thalassina.
DIAGNOSIS. Palp with typical for HYLLINES structure: bulbus oval, with embolus arising posteriorly and paralleling bulbus touching it. Tibial apophysis biramous, with ventral ramus short and pointed, dorsal ramus vestigial, reduced to rounded lobe, in some species to indistinct swelling, rudiments of that state can be traced in other groups of Cosmophasis species. Females in bitaeniata group differ from other by having copulatory ducts long, twisted into loops, coils or even incomplete double spiral, spermathecae duct-like, long and bent. Epigyne with posterior pair of pockets, translucent indistinctly through tegument. Knowledge of diversity in internal structure of epigyne is unfortunately incomplete because females of many species remain unknown. Diagnostic drawings below are integral part of definition.

Gen. Hyllus C. L. Koch, 1846 (39 species)

Type species Hyllus giganteus.
DIAGNOSIS. Bulbus oval, embolus thin, sclerotized, accompanied by white membranous looking structure (as appear on unpublished yet photograph by Siddharth Kulkarni it arises from the basis of embolus and runs parallel to embolus, so deserves more detailed research). Tibial apophysis short, stumpy, its anterior edge broad, divided into irregular, sclerotized "teeth". Epigyne with anterior depression delimited by semiarching edges of copulatory openings, followed by broad arches of entrance chamber of copulatory ducts, partially translucent through tegument. Thin-walled copulatory chamber make half a circle, bends and pass into narrower, thick walled, heavily sclerotized duct, doubling back and passing, after another bend, into spermathecae. Body shape characteristic, with robust, high carapace, broadest at face but gradually narrowing, specially in thoracal part. Sides of carapace in males with characteristic white streak, broadening posteriorly, often diagonal. Abdomen lower and longer that carapace, gradually narrowing. Robust spider, often large. Diagnostic drawings below are integral part of definition.

Gen. Lystrocteisa Simon, 1884 (1 species)

Type species Lystrocteisa myrmex
REMARKS. Placement of this genus somewhat enigmatic. Free embolus resembles HYLLINES, although is not very typical. Complicated ducts and spermathecae fit HYLLINES but placement of minute eyes II near anterior lateral and on the same protuberance, separated from eyes III by broad depression resembles HISPONINES. Tibia I in males, but not in females, strikingly swollen, legs I much longer than remaining, body somewhat ant-like.

Gen. Maevia C.L. Koch, 1846 (3 species)
REMARK. Opinion of Edwards (1977: 22) that "Paramaevia Barnes. ... should not have been erected and all species in it should revert back into Maevia,
since Maevia (Paramaevia) michelsoni Barnes is intermediate between the two" is not supported by any diagnostic documentation, of the other hand
palps of Maevia and Paramaevia are so different that these forms cannot be congeneric.

Type species Maevia inclemens.
REMARKS. Lack of knowledge of interior structures of epigyne hampers classification of this genus. Diagnostic drawings below are integral part of definition.

Gen. Marpissa C. L. Koch, 1846 (23 species)

Type species Marpissa muscosa.
DIAGNOSIS. Cymbium broad with short anterior part, prolateral wall flattened and bald with developed posterior upright flap, it is separated from dorsal surface of cymbium by prominent ridge, covered by setae and ended by sharp, needle like process, articulating with a groove between tibial apophysis and dorsal rim of pedipalpal tibia. Bulbus with posterior part developed into high, conical swelling. Embolus very thin, hairlike, following bulbus laterally, and entering shallow groove extending on tip of cymbium. Copulatory openings located inside small, posterior groove, circular or oval. The diversity of copulatory ducts could be arranged into a line of gradual changes, from beautiful and regular double spiral in M. pulla, through very complicated, chaotic long coils, to much shorter and simpler ducts, line of changes presumably continuous with very short ducts in species of Mendoza. Marpissa nivoi stands out of that line. Body flattened, abdomen narrow, in some species abdomen broadened in anterior half, but pointed terminally. Diagnostic drawings below are integral part of definition.

Gen. Mendoza Peckham & Peckham, 1894 (12 species)

Type species Mendoza canestrini.
DIAGNOSIS. Palp resembling Marpissa by flattened and bald prolateral wall, retrolateral posterior process visible, but less pronounced, cymbium narrower, bulbus oval but flat. Tibial apophysis different - broad and medium size, in some species narrower but with apical end bent dorsal-wards. Epigyne externally very different, with posterior edge deeply bent, bisected by medial process, with copulatory openings invisible externally, on both sides of basis of that process. Ducts short, pass into either sclerotized loops or, in M. canestrini into compact bodies with internal convoluted spaces. Body low and narrow, abdomen long, narrow and pointed. Abdominal pattern dark, in males with three with pairs of thin oblique lines, in females with medium light streak between lateral dark bands, or lines of dark blocks. That coloration is enhanced by light reflecting scales, in M. pulchra very colorful. Diagnostic drawings below are integral part of definition.

Gen. Plexippoides Prószyński, 1976 [1984] (25 species)

Type species Plexippoides starmuehlneri (male only) .
DIAGNOSIS. Palp with broad cymbium, leaving flat area between bulbus and rim of cymbium. Posterior, retrolateral angle of cymbium drawn into pointed and bent short process, in some species sclerotized, touching similarly shaped tibial apophysis. That is comparable with Epeus and a few other genera. Shape of bulbus departing from usual oval by expanded part at basis of embolus, there is characteristic, "ear" shaped flap on bulbus. Embolus hair thin, half encircling bulbus and continued in a groove along tip of cymbium. Epigyne with a pair of small, posterior pockets, copulatory openings anterior, ducts sclerotized, lead into several coils before entering spermathecae, or into compact, sclerotized bodies with internal convoluted spaces. Diagnostic drawings below are integral part of definition.

Gen. Thyene Simon, 1885 (42 species)

Type species Thyene imperialis.
DIAGNOSIS. Genus defined by internal structure of epigyne consisting of a few circular rounds of membranous ducts, arranged dish like, parallel to surface of epigyne and covering deeper laying multi-chambered, sclerotized spermathecae. The armature of scent exuding opening in a form of long duct, chimney like, running from nearby spermathecae to the surface [?] of epigyne. Rims of copulatory ducts straight, delimiting rectangular, white membranous "window". Bulbus is round, with a small flap, encircled by embolus. The structure of epigyne and palp occur in all species of Thyene, independently of shape of carapace, which may be slightly or enormously swollen at the level of eyes III, or parallel sided (such species were classified as Gangus), independently of color pattern and presence of a pair of lateral tufts of hairs near eyes II. Diagnostic drawings below are integral part of definition.

Gen. Tusitala Peckham & Peckham, 1902 (10 species)

Type species Tusitala barbata.
DIAGNOSIS. The genus can be best recognized by presence of "basket" of long, arching setae anteriorly on chelicerae, near their tip. There is anterior oval depression on epigyne, with copulatory openings near its posterior rim, from there runs posteriorly long and relatively broad duct, making next two coils around its later part, doubling back towards large oval chamber, from where narrow and short, but heavily sclerotized duct doubles to small spermatheca. Diagnostic drawings below are integral part of definition.

Gen. Viciria Thorell, 1877 (2 species)

Type species Viciria pavesii.
DIAGNOSIS. Body thin and very long, legs very long. Embolus arises laterally near mid-length of oval bulbus. Internal structure of epigyne insufficiently known, ducts make several loops. Diagnostic drawings below are integral part of definition.
HISTORICAL NOTE. Genus Viciria Thorell 1877, originally having 59 species, appeared to be heterogeneous (Prószyński 1968c 1984b) and consisted of 6 different group of species, which were transferred to genera having similar type species, leaving in the true Viciria only two species, illustrated below. Six species which could not be placed in any genus at that time were left provisionally in "Viciria" and were eventually distributed into their proper genera within next 40 years. Nine unrecognizable species were transferred into temporary "Viciria provisional". A model procedure in my opinion, did not caused much disturbance, except omitting without comment quotation mark at "Viciria" by the Platnick's Catalog (online), which mislead a few subsequent authors, who did not care to read original publication and/or Salticidae database.
