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. Pellenes Simon, 1876 (67 species)

Type species Pellenes (Pellenes) tripunctatus
DIAGNOSIS - see diagnoses of subgenera, below.
REMARKS. Large genus, containing at present 67 species, divided into 6 subgenera, distributed over Palaearctics, Nearctics, Africa, Asia and Australia. Possibly originated in different continental distribution centers and deserves splitting into a few separate genera.
