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. Irura Peckham, Peckham, 1901 (11 species)

Type species Irura pulchra.
REMARKS. Peng & Xie, 1994a: 27 synonymized Kinhia with Irura and transferred all species accordingly. However, Irura has different spermathecae (see I. mandarina), while Kinhia has striking, long spur extending from posterior cymbium over tibia. As spermathecae in these spiders are poorly documented, and males of type species of Irura is not known, the matter of synonymy should be checked again when more data will become available.
Drawings below are integral part of definition.
