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. Psenuc Prószyński, 2016, gen. n. (10 species)
[partial synonym for the genus Pseudicius].

Type species Pseudicius nuclearis Proszynski, 1992.
ETYMOLOGY. Name combines words Pseudicius and nuclearis, grammar gender masculine.

Diagnosis. Share mutual diagnostic characters of PSEUDICIINES: lateral, subocular row of about 10 short bristles on protuberances, modified tibia of robust leg I, flattened body and characteristic color pattern. Internal structures of epigyne comparable with Pseudicius (intermediate form is Pseudicius vankeeri Metzner, 1999) set transversally, however, spermatheca is somewhat swollen distally, copulatory ducts light sclerotized, encircles proximal, level part of spermatheca by a single, or a few coils, armature of scent opening developed into long, prominent duct, chimney-like. Epigyne externally comparable with Psudicius, differs by large oval, shallow depression with a pair of median grooves containing medial copulatory openings. There is a pair of indistinct, postero-lateral pockets, translucent trough tegument. Male palp with elongate oval bulbus, with pronounced posterior part. Embolus parallel to bulbus, arising laterally from posterior part of bulbus. Tibial apophysis short and single, inclined ventrally, with vestigial dorsal ramus reduced to slight swelling on the dorsal edge.
Integral part of the definition are drawings below.
