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. Lapsias Simon, 1900 (7 species) ,

Type species Lapsias estebanensis
DEFINITION. LAPSIINES are poorly known and ill defined group of South Western Hemisphere genera, considered by Maddison & Needham 2006 an informal group of a subfamily rank, on the basis of molecular data, but they give no practicable diagnostic characters. Simon (1901: 429) classified Lapsias into group Astieae. Diagnostic drawings in the literature show palpal bulbus with simple sclerotized apophysis or apophyses, spermophor following contour of bulbus, embolus encircling bulbus entirely or partially. Epigyne with complicated spermathecae and ducts. Drawings below are integral part of the definition.
REMARKS: diagnostic drawings of palps in COCALODINES, another poorly known group of genera, from New Guinea, also has bulbus apophysis. The group is too little known to interpret significance of that structure.
Drawings below are integral part of the definition.
