Genus Magyarus Zabka, 1985

Diagnoses of genera of South East Asia: Magyarus (?; 4). This monotypic genus is based on a single male specimen collected from pitfalls in Vietnam. The male palp of M. typicus Zabka, 1985 is described in some detail, but the shape of the spider is not mentioned. The cephalothorax is said to be brown with the eye field darker. The damaged abdomen is thought to be grey-brown with the sides yellow and there were traces of a brown median band. Legs I are orange-brown in colour and lighter ventrally. The other legs are grey-orange, grey near the joints and carry brown spines. The palp is close to that of Phlegra (p. 346), and it is possible that Magyarus also looks like Phlegra.
Distribution: Magyarus is known only from Vietnam. Murphy & Murphy 2000: 293. By courtesy of the Authors' and the Malaysian Nature Society.
