Note on illustrations. This introduction to classification of Salticidae includes only species defined by 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.

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.
