Informal group of genera HOLOPLATINES

Type genus Holoplatys, of which type species is Holoplatys planissima (Koch L. 1879) [syn. Marptusa planissima Koch L. 1879].
Documentation studied. Survey of diagnostic drawings in Prószyński (2016a) and in original literature.
Mutual diagnostic characters of genera. Recognizable by characteristic double bend of embolus and it basis: on the level of anterior edge of bulbus the fleshy embolus' basis bends towards mid-line of bulbus, upon reaching it produces embolus, bent anteriorwards, usually short and thin, median and posterior parts of the basis are not clearly discernible on majority of existing drawings. Antero-lateral part of the spermophor visible, but remaining part is hidden behind oblique edge of basis, or not translucent trough soft tissues and/or tegument of bulbus. Epigyne of limited value for recognition of this group as a whole, but can be useful for recognition of particular genera and identification of species. Ducts are thick and sclerotized, usually developed transversally.

Nomenclatorical corrections Chinattus undulatus separated from Chinattus szechwanensis.
Chinattus undulatus (Song & Chai, 1992) is an unrecognizable species defined by doctored documentation in Song, Zhu & Chen, (1999: 512, f. 298 G, N) showing in fact:
- 1) unidentifiable epigyne of Heliophanus undulatus Song & Chai, 1992 (Fig. G ) collected in Hubei Province,
- 2) lateral view of palp of Chinattus szechwanensis (Prószynski, 1992) (Fig. N - in fact a non-acknowledged copy of drawing by Prószynski 1992a: 94, f. 22-27). collected in the outskirts of the Tibet Plateau in Sichuan Provinces, the distance between these localities is more than 1000 km.
