- Unidentified Hyetussinae
A tentative grouping of neotropical salticids. One feature they share with the synemosynines is the curling of the embolus around the top of the cymbium when the embolus is long enough. Like the synemosynines, they also often wave the first pair of legs prominently, but they are otherwise not so ant-like as the synemosynines. It would not be surprising should it turn out that the synemosynines are derived from hyetussines.
