Diagnosis of the family Salticidae. Medium size or small spiders (4-12 mm, only exceptionally up to 20 mm), with anterior body end broadly truncated, with 2 pairs of eyes on the face (anterior surface): large anterior median eyes (AME), and smaller (often by 1/3 or 1/2) anterior lateral eyes (ALE), which in some genera can be moved into separate row behind AME (see hyperlinked drawings of particular genera). The remaining two pairs of eyes (of rows II and III) located on dorso- lateral edges of cephalothorax, delimit a quadrangular area between eyes, called eye field (extending to about half of cephalothorax). Body compact, legs short or moderately long. Salticidae move by jumping and walking, interrupted frequently by resting or ambushing periods; they are active hunters with complex behaviour. About 90 species was found to suck additionally flower nectar or drink water with sugar.They spin silky retreats and cocoons, but usually not catching webs, with exception for a few Asiatic genera, apparently ancient.
