Myrmarachne MacLeay, 1839 (Araneae, salticidae): generic name conserved
Abstract

The Commission has conserved the generic name Myrmarachne MacLeay, 1839 for a well-known and widespread group of extant, ant-mimicking jumping spiders (Araneae, salticidae) by suppression of the little-used senior subjective synonym Entomocephalus Holl, 1829 originally introduced for a fossil spider.
