CHRYSILLINES

by Jerzy Prószyński
Version December 31st, 2015 Disclaimer,This is a work in progress, continually being developed and revised. Proposed taxonomic names included here are not valid unless subsequently published in accepted taxonomic papers. Note on illustrations. This introduction to classification of Salticidae includes only species with 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. Phintella Bösenberg, Strand, 1906 (49 species)

Type species Phintella bifurcilinea.
NOTE. A speciose genus with palps and epigyne resembling other genera of this group. I propose to separate them arbitrarily from Chrysilla by white pattern of spots (see photos below) on abdomen and carapace, and by body shape. However some species are pending revision and reclassification to new genera. Diagnostic drawings below are integral part of definitions.
