Family: Salticidae Blackwall,1841 [] Back

Gen. Sitticus Simon , 1901 [ ]
N.B.: Considered a senior synonym of Attinella Banks, 1905 by Richman, 1979: 125, and of Tomis F. O. Pickard-Cambridge, 1901 by Galiano, 1991a: 61. Sitticus is redefined by Prószyński, 2017: 41; the genera Attulus, Jollas, Sittiab, Sittiflor (syn. of Calositticus), Sittilong and Sittipub (syn. of Hypositticus) belong to the genera group Sitticus s. l.; South American groups of the species Sitticus leucoproctus (S. cellulanus, S. flabellatus, S. leucoproctus) and Sitticus palpalis (S. canus, S. mazorcanus, S. palpalis, S. phaleratus, S. tenebricus, S. uber, S. vanvolsemorum) are left temporarily within the genus Sitticus pending further research; the re-synonymizations of Attulus, Calositticus (= Sittiflor), Hypositticus, Sittiab and Sittisax, proposed by Breitling, 2019b: 31, are not accepted here as they are based mainly on COI (see FAQ 7).
