Salticidae: Diagnostic Drawings Library

by Jerzy Proszynski 1997

Genus Pselcis Simon, 1903 = Thiania

Diagnoses of genera of South East Asia: Pselcis (?; 7-8). The type species P. latefasciata (Simon, 1877) is an immature male. He placed it near Laufeia (p. 339). The habitus, drawn by Proszynski in 1987, more closely resembles that of Thiania (p. 317). Distribution: Pselcis is known only from the Philippines.
General remarks: Most of these genera are known only from south east Asia. Although there are still no habitat details, genitalia and occasionally other drawings are now available for many of them. In the original descriptions and in Simon's salticid classification, mention is sometimes made of close and more familiar relatives. The latter will be discussed in more detail in due course.
