Genus Rogmocrypta Simon, 1900

Diagnoses of genera of South East Asia: Rogmocrypta (2-3; 3-4). Only one species, R. puta Simon, 1900, occurs in our area. The cephalothorax is short and quite wide, with the cephalus flat and parallel, about as long as the sloping and slightly converging thorax. The eye area is black and slightly lighter between the eyes. The rest of the carapace is more or less uniformly orange, becoming darker towards the margin. The abdomen is oval, about as long as but not as wide as the carapace. The male has a full, shiny, dark orange scutum. The legs are uniformly pale orange. Ventrally on tibiae I there are 3 pairs of long spines and on metatarsi I there are 2 pairs.
Distribution: Different single species of Rogmocrypta are recorded from Singapore, the Philippines and New Caledonia. Murphy & Murphy 2000: 287. By courtesy of the Authors' and the Malaysian Nature Society.
