Salticidae: Diagnostic Drawings Library

by Jerzy Proszynski, 1999

Genus Rhombonotus L. Koch, 1879


Diagnoses of genera of South East Asia: Rhombonotus (?; ?). R. similis Hasselt, 1882 [= Ligonipes. - J.Pr.]. It is close to Ligonipes. Ligonipes does not occur in S.E. Asia. Drawings of the Australian species R. gracilis (and Ligonipes) are given in Davies & Zabka, 1989. Distribution: Rhombonotus is known only from Sumatra and Australia. 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.
