Version December 31st, 2015
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.

Correction of mistaken synonyms
of Japanese Pseudicius

Suguro & Yahata (2014) purported to revise Japanese species of genus Tasa and part of Pseudicius by morphological investigation and molecular analysis using partial sequencing data of m-DNA COI gene. Their opinions relate directly to descriptions of genera presented in this paper.
1. Female of Psudicius koreanus Wesołowska, 1981 cannot by matched with male Tasa nipponica Bohdanowicz, Prószyński, 1987, because absence in the latter of the crucial somatic characters - lateral subocular row of bristles on tubercles, tibia not modified, different body shape and proportions, also palps are incomparable with any of 120 species of "PSEUDICINES".
2. Pseudicius tokaraensis and P. okinawaense differs between themselves distinctly by details of spermathecae and copulatory ducts, which cannot be dismissed as individual variation, evaluation of which require comparison of all ten species of the genus, delimited now as Okinawicius Prószyński, 2016 and distributed from Japan to Africa.
3. Pseudicius kimjoopili (Kim, 1995) was misplaced in the original description, its correct combination is now Plexippoides kimjoopili (Kim, 1995).
4. Pseudicius vulpes (Grube 1861) is transferred now to the genus Orienticius Prószyński, 2016, not related to any "PSEUDICINES".
5. After all these adjustments, the fauna of Japan contains now three species related to Pseudicius: Nepalicius koreanus (Wesołowska, 1981), Okinawicius okinawaensis (Prószyński, 1992), O. tokaraensis (Bohdanowicz, Prószyński, 1987).
