LYSSOMANINES

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. Chinoscopus Simon, 1901 (4 species)

Type species Chinoscopus gracilis.
LYSSOMANINES are defined by arrangement of eyes in four rows and by numerous separate teeth on inner posterior margin of chelicerae. Utilization of palp structures for identification require additional comparative research, internal structures of epigyne are simply unknown for majority of species. The genera may be provisionally separated by their external appearance. Drawings below are integral part of the definition. REMARKS. Eyes arrangement in four rows occurs also in genera not related to LYSSOMANIDAE: Athamas and Leptathamas belongs to EUOPHRYINES, placement of Orthrus is unclear. For details of diagnostic characters - see comparison of species within particular genera. For different opinions see Maddison 2015. Drawings below are integral part of the definition.
