Validation of Eustiromastix guianae (Caporiacco, 1954) (Araneae, Salticidae) with a first description of the female, and additions to the salticid fauna of French Guiana.

Courtial C, Picard L, Ysnel F, Pétillon J - Zookeys (2014)

Bottom Line: In this paper, we validate the doubtful species status of E. guianae, with redescriptions of (supposedly lost) type and holotype males, and a first description of the female.Both sexes are measured and illustrated by pictures of habitus and copulatory organs.Seventeen new salticid species for French Guiana are also reported and a detailed catalogue of all salticid species from the Trinité National Nature Reserve is provided.
