Logunov DV, Marusik YM - Zookeys (2014)

Bottom Line: Seven new species are diagnosed, described and illustrated: E. daklak sp. n. (♀) from Viet-Nam; E. lehtineni sp. n. (♂♀) from India, Thailand and Viet-Nam; E. lobli sp. n. (♂) from Malaysia; E. pappi sp. n. (♂) from Thailand; E. pulchella sp. n.(♂) from Thailand; E. schwendingeri sp. n. (♂♀) from Thailand; and E. thailandica sp. n. (♂♀) from Thailand.Eupoa prima Żabka, 1985 and E. yunnanensis Peng & Kim, 1997 are redescribed and illustrated on the basis of type and/or newly collected materials.The female of E. yunnanensis Peng & Kim, 1997 is found and described for the first time.

ABSTRACT
The south-east Asian genus Eupoa is redescribed and diagnosed. Seven new species are diagnosed, described and illustrated: E. daklak sp. n. (♀) from Viet-Nam; E. lehtineni sp. n. (♂♀) from India, Thailand and Viet-Nam; E. lobli sp. n. (♂) from Malaysia; E. pappi sp. n. (♂) from Thailand; E. pulchella sp. n.(♂) from Thailand; E. schwendingeri sp. n. (♂♀) from Thailand; and E. thailandica sp. n. (♂♀) from Thailand. Eupoa prima Żabka, 1985 and E. yunnanensis Peng & Kim, 1997 are redescribed and illustrated on the basis of type and/or newly collected materials. The female of E. yunnanensis Peng & Kim, 1997 is found and described for the first time.

General appearance of Eupoa pulchella sp. n. (87–88, ♂ paratype), Eupoa schwendingeri sp. n. (♂ holotype, 89–90) and Eupoa thailandica sp. n. (♀ and ♂ paratypes, 85–86). 85 female body, dorsal view 86–87, 89 male body, dorsal view 88, 90 ditto, lateral view.

Figure 14: General appearance of Eupoa pulchella sp. n. (87–88, ♂ paratype), Eupoa schwendingeri sp. n. (♂ holotype, 89–90) and Eupoa thailandica sp. n. (♀ and ♂ paratypes, 85–86). 85 female body, dorsal view 86–87, 89 male body, dorsal view 88, 90 ditto, lateral view.

Mentions: By their general appearance, members of the genus Eupoa are superficially similar to those of Neon Simon, 1876. Both groups are small to very small spiders, with males having the swollen and relatively large palps for the size of the spiders (Figs 42–43, 86, 90). Both Eupoa and Neon are typical dwellers of forest leaf litter. However, the conformation of male copulatory organs in Eupoa is much more complex leaving no doubts that both genera are not related. The phylogenetic relationships of Eupoa remain poorly resolved, although the genus is indeed a basal salticid; see below under ‘Diagnosis and Affinities’.
