Diagnoses of genera of South East Asia: Small, squat, yellowish-brown
or blackish salticids. Found at ground level at base of plants and in litter.
General remarks: Species in this group are dull yellowish-brown coloured
and more patterned than those in the previous group. They are often found when
sifting through litter or grubbing about at the base of low vegetation in the
open. Genus: Euophrys is a very large, worldwide genus [split
since into 3 genera - J.P.] with very few species in the region that runs from
India through to New Zealand. Of the five species recorded from our area, there
is no recent information for the species from Java, E. giebeli, and the
species from P. Malaysia, E. kulczynskii, [specimens - presumably types
of both species are available in Mus. Civico in Genoa - J.P.] and those are
regarded as doubtful by Roewer, 1954. The drawing of the palp by the author
of E. albopatella from Myanmar, does not look like the palp of a Euophrys
sp. Even the two Euophrys species from Vietnam, described by Zabka in 1985,
have genitalia which seem nearer to those of Chalcoscirtus than to those of
a typical Euophrys sp. Chalcoscirtus is a genus very similar in appearance to
Euophrys. The cephalothorax of a typical Euophrys is of moderate height, has
a flat top that extends from the cephalus on to the thorax for some distance
before falling away steeply to the posterior edge. The sides are very steep.
The eye area is black and the rest of the carapace brown. The abdomen is oval
,with the front narrowly truncate. It is basically yellow-brown in colour with
neat dark brown markings which are sometimes formed into oblique lines on the
sides and chevrons down the centre. The legs are moderately long, robust but
not very spiny. They can be brown, dark brown on the male and light brown on
Distribution: Euophrys is a widespread genus which occurs mainly in the holarctic region, South America and to a lesser extent Africa. Elsewhere there are a few species recorded only from India, south east Asia and New Zealand and some of these are doubtful. Murphy & Murphy 2000: 341-342.
