Family: Salticidae Blackwall,1841 [urn:lsid:nmbe.ch:spiderfam:0101] Back

Gen. Evarcha Simon , 1902 [urn:lsid:nmbe.ch:spidergen:02950 ]
N.B.: The synonymy of this genus with Pellenes Simon, 1876 (Lowrie & Gertsch, 1955: 10) has not been accepted by subsequent workers; considered a senior synonym of Colopsus Simon, 1902 (type Colopsus cancellatus Simon, 1902) by Prószyński, 1984a: 51 (see also Blick & Marusik, 2018: 237). Split into several genera by Prószyński, 2018b; leaving 15 species in Evarcha s. lat., listed as "Evarcha [?]". The genera Evacin Prószyński, 2018 [type Evarcha kochi Simon, 1902] (furthermore Evacin would be a synonym of Colopsus Simon, 1902, see Blick & Marusik, 2018), Evalba Prószyński, 2018 [type Evarcha albaria (L. Koch, 1878), originally in Hasarius], Evaneg Prószyński, 2018 [type Evarcha negevensis Prószyński, 2000] and Evawes Prószyński, 2018 [type Evarcha patagiata (O. Pickard-Cambridge, 1872), originally in Salticus] are not accepted here (cf. Kropf et al., 2019).
