The only reason for Roewer's 1951: 453 claim of preoccupation of the name of this species is apparently his own erroneous transfer of Metaphidippus tricolor Chamberlin et Ivie, 1941 into Dendryphantes where Eris tricolor (C. L. Koch, 1846) was provisionally placed by Petrunkevitch 1911: 643 (a Catalogue!). As Roewer did not provide arguments for such transfer and there are no reasons to trust his judgement - I do not accept his replacement until proved by actual revisionary research.
