Family: Salticidae Blackwall,1841 [] Back

Gen. Evarcha Simon , 1902 [ ]
N.B.: the synonymy of this genus with Pellenes Simon, 1876 (Lowrie & Gertsch, 1955: 10) has not been accepted by subsequent workers;  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], 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); Kanesharatnam & Benjamin, 2021: 2770 agree with Prószyński, 2018b that Evarcha should be split, but the "division supported by our analysis is different from what he chose".
