Abstract
The following 14 species of jumping spiders from the southern part of Africa are redescribed : Baryphas woodi (Peckham & Peckham, 1903), Cosmophasis australis Simon, 1902, Euophrys infausta Peckham & Peckham, 1903, Euophrys purcelli Peckham & Peckham, 1903, Habrocestum luculentum Peckham & Peckham, 1903, Parajotus obscurofemoratus Peckham & Peckham, 1903, Phlegra imperiosa Peckham ł Peckham, 1903, Pochyta solers Peckham ł Peckham, 1903, Rhene banksi Peckham ł Peckham, 1902, Rhene biguttata Peckham ł Peckham, 1903, Saitis leighi Peckham ł Peckham, 1903, Sitticus uphami (Peckham ł Peckham, 1903), Thyene aperta (Peckham ł Peckham, 1903) and Thyenula juvenca Simon, 1902. A lectopype for Rhene biguttata is designated. The generic name Klamathia Peckham ł Peckham, 1903 is recognized as a junior synonym of Thyenula Simon, 1902. Three new synonyms are recognized: Heliophanus orchestioides Lessert, 1925 with Euophrys infausta Peckham ł Peckham, 1903, Pochyta solers Peckham ł Peckham, 1903 with Phintella aequipes (Peckham & Peckham, 1903) and Klamathia flava Peckham ł Peckham, 1903 with Thyenula juvenca Simon, 1902. Five new combinations are proposed: Euophrys uphami (ex Sitticus) Heliophanus infaustus (ex Euophrys), Mogrus woodi (ex Baryphas), Phintella australis (ex Cosmophasis) and Thyenula leighi (ex Saitis). Females of Euophrys purcelli and Thyenula leighi are described for the first time.
