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. Name formation: Ligonipes- Ligonipeines

Gen. Judalana Rix, 1999 (1 species)

Type species Judalana lutea
DIAGNOSIS. Group of genera LIGONIPEINES are recognizable by general ant-likeness, with tibia I strikingly flattened and broadly expanded, intensively black (however, not developed in Damoetas), cheliceral teeth saw-like (multicusp on common sclerotized basis) on expanded lobe of cheliceral retrolateral edge, male chelicerae short. Resembles MYRMARACHNINES by appearance of epigyne and pipes-like spermathecae, stretching parallel along axial diameter of epigyne, with small anterior dilatation. Copulatory ducts membranous, joining "pipes" posteriorly, visible on cleared and stained epigyne preparation. Palps with bulbus oval, encircled by embolus, usually twice, with spermophor along margin of bulbus, with additional, small loop. .
DESCRIPTION. Body black and yellow, abdomen elongated, with indistinct abdominal depression. Legs I with broad, swollen femur, patella and tibia, slender and much thinner metatarsus and tarsus. Spermathecal pipes long and thin, with indistinct anterior dilatation, passing under narrow angle into copulatory duct, possibly with walls harder than in other genera. Windows elongate narrow. epigyne long and narrow, Male palp as yet poorly known. Drawings below are integral part of the definition. COMPOSITION. Single known species from Australia.REFERENCES.
