Comment by J. Proszynski. Looking through drawings of North American species,
absent yet from the present Internet "Salticidae of the World" with
Wayne P. Maddison, we were surprised by similarities between Habrocestum
parvulum and several sppecies of Asiatic genus Habrocestoides.
These consist, first of all, of peculiar globlar structure inside posterior,
triangular margin of epigynum (cf. ) and basis of embolus always bent medially,
with usually short embolus. Genital structures in Habrocestoides
are generally variable, but above mentioned characters are almost always present.
Single species of an Asiatic genus in the N. American continent deserves certainly
some attention (J.P. 2003).
