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. 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.
