MENEMERINES

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. Kima Peckham & Peckham, 1902 (5 species) ,

Type species Kima africana.
DIAGNOSIS. MENEMERINES are recognizable by broad and fleshy basis of embolus, sitting laterally to bulbus, with tip either double or, if single, followed dorsally by white, unsclerotized structure, usually little visible and known. Ducts in epigyne usually heavily sclerotized. With long pedicel and long, thin legs, Kima has ant-like appearance. Its palp resembles Menemerus by location along bulbus and fleshy basis, but there is no such similarity in structures of epigyne, with thin copulatory ducts making a loop and branching off long scent exuding duct, also spermathecae look different. However male and female are correctly matched (information from W. Wesolowska). There are no stridulatory subocular row of setae. Drawings below are integral part of the definition.
