.Single genus Onomastus

Description. Suggested mutual property of the genus - green, delicate body (see photos above), however basing recognition on color pattern and fragile body seems insufficient. Palps and epigyne differentiated (as shown below). Structures of epigyne and palp known heretofore indicate that subdivision may be necessary, especially when more species will become available

Gen. Onomastus Simon, 1900
Type species Onomastus nigricaudus (12x recognizable species).

COMMENT. Development of very complicated structures of palps and internal structures requires preparation of partial diagnostic drawings, which should be standardized and made in a clear way.
