Informal group of genera EUPOAINES

Mutual diagnostic characters of genera included. Minute (total length 2 mm, or less), vegetation litter dwellers, with nondescript color pattern and very complicated palps and internal structure of epigyne (see illustrations below)..
Description. Minute (total length 2 mm, or less), vegetation litter dwellers. Such spiders have similar external appearance on all continents, irrelevant of their relationships. They have typical for Salticidae eyes arrangement in three rows, not resembling LYSSOMANINES. Palps and internal structure of epigyne very complicated require more studies. First species discovered by Żabka (1985) (Fig. 54B) was followed by prolific species described in excellent papers by Zhou & Li (2013) and Logunov & Marusik (2014), where more data could be found.

COMMENT - this beautiful series of preparation is perfect illustration of evolution od diagnostic structures within a genus, but seems to require confirmation of internal structures of epigyne, perhaps by staining not sclerotized structures with Chlorazol Black E.
