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. Opisthoncus Koch L., 1880 (28 species)

Type species Opisthoncus polyphemus.
DIAGNOSIS. Common and important Australian genus, recognizable by external appearance. Palps typical for HYLLINES. Epigyne oval with large, anterior oval depression, delimited laterally by semiarching rims of copulatory openings. Copulatory ducts make single or a few narrow coils, which make compact group, set transversally, and pass into oval spermathecae. Diagnostic drawings below are integral part of definition.
