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.
