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. Philaeus Thorell, 1869 (1 species)

Type species Philaeus chrysops.
REMARKS. South Palaearctic genus, common in Mediterranean and occurring in Central Asian belt, rare in Europe north of Mediterranean. Structure of palps permit to classify it among HYLLINES, which is supported by internal structures of epigyne comparable with some Mogrus. Males change dark coloration of abdomen into striking red upon maturity. Diagnostic drawings below are integral part of definition.
