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. Myrmarachne MacLeay, 1839 (103 species)
- genus restricted now to Myrmarachne tristis and formicaria groups of species described by Wanless 1978a,
species from other groups are now transferred to newly delimited genera Toxeus gen. n., Myrmage gen. n., Myrmagua gen. n.,
Myrmanu gen. n., Myrmapana gen. n., Myrmapeni gen. n., Myrmaplata gen. n., Myrmatheca gen. n., Myrmavola gen. n.,
Myrmele gen. n., see also genera and Belippo and Emertonius.

Type species Myrmarachne melanocephala MacLeay, 1839 from India, redesignated by Edwards & Benjamin [2009: 2309: 5].
DIAGNOSIS. Correspond with general characteristics of MYRMARACHNINES, which includes differences from several other ant-mimicking groups of Salticidae by exceptional "pipes-like" sclerotized spermathecae, stretching parallel along median axis of epigyne. Copulatory ducts, invisible without staining, make large membranous coils, running from almost indiscernible slit-like copulatory openings, pressed to median septum of epigyne, towards posterior end of spermathecae, near posterior rim of epigyne. Males have oval, or almost circular bulbus, encircled with coils of embolus inside semitranslucent sheath. Spermophor broad, runs along margin of bulbus, making additional loop, small and thin, before entering embolus. Tibial apophysis (RTA) short, twisted corkscrew-like, or straight. Male chelicerae usually disproportionately long, with row of individual tiny teeth along internal posterior edge, fang is very long. For details see drawings (below).
More detailed features include transversal detour in anterior one third of length of spermathecal “pipes”, twisted into loop, knot, or double spiral. In males bulbus with additional thin loop of spermophor in the center, tibial apophysis short, twisted screw like, with developed flange, chelicerae oversized, their length variable even within the same species. Body variable, always with pedicel visible, constrictions of carapace and abdomen in males variable, in females less pronounced. Drawings below are integral part of the definition.
REMARKS. Usage of the name Myrmarachne MacLeay, 1839 is now restricted to the tristis and formicaria groups of species, described by Wanless 1978a. Delimited in this way, the genus contains now 103 identifiable species distributed in warm areas of Asia, Africa, Australia, as well as in Central and South America, one species occurs in Europe and has recently appeared in North America. Distributional centers of the genus are in SE Asia and tropical Africa.
REMARKS ON NEOTYPE. Edwards & Benjamin [2009: 2309: 5] replaced lost type specimen with the neotype they have designated - the specimen from the Calcutta Botanical Garden collected in 1973, kept in the Smithsonian Institution, Washington DC. Following their working philosophy ".. many well known species are easily recognized by their overall habitus, and we are of the opinion that this is true for M. melanocephala as well" [Edwards & Benjamin, 2012, No 2309, P. 10-11] they created four new synonyms, specimens of which they use for description of neotype, together with fresh specimen from geographically distant location, but they have failed to describe and document the neotype specimen itself. The drawing of male palps (Figs 212-213) are made from an old specimen from Sri Lanka, two drawings of epigyne (Figs 191-192) belongs to two different species, internal structure of one of these is incompatible with supposed synonym M. ramosa (Figs 189-190), the photographs of old and new specimens from different locations do not support alleged conspecificity. They failed to provide documentation of fresh specimens from the terra typica (Calcutta Botanical Garden) they designated, interpretation of geographical area of the species is based in part on misidentified specimens and conclusions based on "geographical proximity (Pakistan, Bintang Isl.)" of unchecked specimens. Because of lack of necessary documentation and obvious misidentifications, the synonymy of M. melanocephala with Salticus contractus Karsch, 1880; S. providens Peckham and Peckham, 1892; M. ramosa Badcock, 1918 and M. lateralis Badcock, 1918 should be considered void, the neotype specimen itself should be redescribed and documented.
Edwards created a large collection of Salticidae in Gainesville, FL, containing not less than 24 species of Myrmarachne s.l. [ Prószyński 2014], however, did not use it to publish any diagnostic drawing (palps or epigyne) or photographs.
