5. Documentation of description:   
   a) original label in Proszynski 1976: 187 - at the time considered "provisional publication of drawings"
 of the holotype - a specimen "striking as being most beautiful Salticid in the area: abdomen gold with
 median streak blue and lateral spots velvet black"

  b) efforts to save name "Marpissa pulchra" - description in Weso;owska 1981a:  66 -
 paratypes supposedly "being faded", specimens from Korea

The  precedesns of recognition of names incompletely described was given by the following case: 
N. I. Platnick 2005. The World Spider Catalog, Version 5.0 (Internet). Comment to Bathippus kochi: 
"omitted by Roewer, considered a nomen nudum by Bonnet, but Simon provided purportedly diagnostic
 information and the specific name is therefore valid". That description is quoted below:
