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. Ligonipes Karsch, 1878 (3 species)

Type species Ligonipes illustris Karsch, 1878.
DIAGNOSIS. Differs from Myrmarachne by dense ventral brush of black setae along broad, enlarged tibia I. Spermathecae pipe-like, resembling Judalana but bent posteriorly and running anteriorwads along half length of epigyne, parallel to main part of pipes, only then passing into coils of presumably membranous copulatory ducts.
DESCRIPTION. Body coloration dark, black with greenish scales, abdomen with indistinct constriction (Fig. 17). Epigyne with windows elongate oval, spermathecae but longer, their posterior parts run parallel along half of the main parts, then pass into long and coiled copulatory ducts, presumably membranous. Male unknown. Drawings below are integral part of the definition.
COMPOSITION. Ligonipes illustris Karsch, 1878, L. lacertosus (Thorell, 1881), L. semitectus (Simon, 1900), Ligonipes sp. Davies Todd & Zabka, 1989.
