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. Helicius Prˇszynski, 1976 (4 species)

Type species Helicius cylindratus.
DIAGNOSIS. Epigyne with pockets developed in posterior part, but distant from the edge. Ducts and spermatheca arranged linear, parallel to body axis. Copulatory ducts runs from anterior openings gently bent, armature of scent opening prominent, developed transversally. Bulbus broad, short embolus arises anteriorly. Tibial apophysis trapezium shaped, broadened anteriorly. Diagnostic drawings below are integral part of definition.
