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. Myrmanu Prószyński, 2016 gen. n. (2 species)
[proposed as partial synonym for the genus Myrmarachne (in part)].

Myrmarachne nubilis group of species by Wanless [1978: 110-113].
Type species Myrmarachne nubilis Wanless, 1978.

ETYMOLOGY. Name combines words Myrmarachne and nubilis, grammar gender assumed female.


Diagnosis. "Pipes-like" sclerotized spermathecae resemble these in Myrmarachne, however, transversal detour is turned 90 degrees anteriorwards, in a results double coils of detour lies parallel to main axis of epigyne, making compact group with terminal parts of spermathecae. Presence of coils of copulatory ducts is distinctly marked posteriorly to spermathecae on Wanless drawings, but without details, so their shape is unknown. Pocket is proportionately long and narrow, located between posterior edge of epigyne and spermathecae. Pedicel relatively short, abdomen of females not constricted, carapace with indistinct, shallow dorsal constriction. Males unknown, without knowledge of their palps the relationship with Myrmarachne is tentative.
Integral part of the definition are drawings below. Composition. Two species from Madagascar, considered as Myrmarachne nubilis group of species by Wanless (1978: 110-113),. are transferred from genus Myrmarachne MacLeay, 1839: Myrmanu mahasoa (Wanless, 1978) comb. n., M. nubilis (Wanless, 1978) comb. n.
