Miscellaneous salticids with a fixed embolus

Wayne Maddison
These salticids, which belong to the Salticine Division, are not yet clearly assigned to groups. Most or all have the embolus fixed to the tegulum (in contrast to the dendryphantines, euophryines and others). Some genera, such as Maevia, Marpissa, and Paramarpissa, likely have some flexibility in the embolus but may lack a full distal hematodocha.
Containing group: Salticidae

This page is a Tree of Life Branch Page.

Each ToL branch page provides a synopsis of the characteristics of a group of organisms representing a branch of the Tree of Life. The major distinction between a branch and a leaf of the Tree of Life is that each branch can be further subdivided into descendent branches, that is, subgroups representing distinct genetic lineages.

For a more detailed explanation of the different ToL page types, have a look at the Structure of the Tree of Life page.
