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. Marusyllus Prószyński, 2016 gen. n. (21 species)
[partial synonym for the genus Yllenus (hamifer group Prˇszynski, 1968)].

Yllenus (hamifer group) Prószynski, 1968e: 430.,
Yllenus (hamifer group) Logunov, Marusik 2003b: 118
.
Type species Yllenus hamifer Simon, 1876.
ETYMOLOGY. Named in honor of prominent arachnologist - Dr. Y.M. Marusik [MARUS-ik-YLL-US], co-author of the big monograph of the genus Yllenus, the editor of many of my publications and personal friend. Grammar gender - masculine.
DESCRIPTION. General characters shared with remaining genera of YLLENINES (see above), but palps and epigyne evolving from relatively "normal" to very specialized. Tip of cymbium striking by being drawn into long, anterior "tail", guiding embolus, bending over palpal organ, with narrow and bald depression along its whole length. Embolus which is hair thin and very long. Bulbus relatively small. Conductor very unusual, crescent shaped, broad and robust, in majority of species larger than bulbus. Palpal femur broad, crescent shaped, tibia short with large tibial apophysis, articulating with corresponding plate-like outgrowth of the cymbium's postero-vental angle. Spermathecae relatively small and simple, copulatory ducts making complicated coils, evolving to very complicates double spiral. Length of ducts seem to parallel length of embolus. Drawings below constitute integral part of the genus definition.

The following species are transferred from Yllenus Simon 1868 to Marusyllus gen. nov.: Marusyllus aralicus (Logunov, Marusik, 2003), comb. n., M. auspex (Pickard-Cambridge O., 1885), comb. n., M. bajan (Prˇszynski, 1968), comb. n., M. bator (Prˇszynski, 1968), comb. n., M. coreanus (Prˇszynski, 1968), comb. n., M. elegans (Kroneberg, 1875), comb. n., M. gregoryi (Logunov, 2010), comb. n., M. hamifer (Simon, 1895), comb. n., M. kalkamanicus (L. & M., 2003), M. karnai (L. & M., 2003), M. kotchevnik (L. & M., 2003), M. maoniuensis (Liu, Wang, Peng X., 1991), M. mongolicus (Prˇszynski, 1968), comb. n., M. murgabicus (L. & M., 2003, comb. n., M. namulinensis (Hu, 2001), comb. n., M. pamiricus (L. & M., 2003), comb. n., M. pseudobajan (L. & M., 2003), M. robustior (Prˇszynski, 1968), comb. n., M. tuvinicus (L. & M., 2003), comb. n., M. uzbekistanicus (L. & M., 2003)

Synonymy of M. auspex and baltistanus is sustained by comparison of epigyne of both paralectotype specimens, misidentification of other specimens is irrelevant.
