ASEMONEINES
informal group of genera

Mutual diagnostic characters of genera included. Eyes arranges in four lines. Legs thin but not "excessively"long (practical difference with LYSSOMANINES), palps with prominent apophyses on either tibia, patella or femur. Internal structures of epigyne diverse, poorly known, pending further research.

COMMENT. Comparison of diagnostic drawings by different authors discloses influence of different research philosophy. F. R. Wanless - excellent arachnologist and authority on several genera, dispersed attention to a number of different kind of characters, his drawings of genitalic characters, made with drawing apparatus, were small, originals about 5 x 5 cm, which gave imprecise picture, as exemplified by, for instance, Pandisus (below). Originals of drawings by Prószyński had standard dimensions 15 x 15 cm (at beginning even bigger) and were made with help of a microscope ocular grid, which did not blur observed picture. That permitted to base research on smaller details of epigyne structures.
