Modern diagnostic standards require large, not diagramatic drawings of palpal organ in ventral and lateral position, epigynum (with differentiated external sculpture and translucent internal parts) and preparation of internal structure cleared of soft tissues and with membraneous parts displayed by staining (preferably in Chlorazol Black E). Additionally, to identify genus necessary are drawings of body (dorsal and lateral views) and colour pattern. Substandart diagnostic drawings do not permit recognition of species and identification of genera. The species purported to be illustrated by substandard drawings should be revised and illustrated again by standard methods.
