Abstract

RUIZ, Gustavo R. S.  and  BRESCOVIT, Antonio D.. Redescription and resolution of some Neotropical species of jumping spiders described by Caporiacco and description of a new species (Araneae: Salticidae). Rev. Bras. Zool. [online]. 2008, vol.25, n.3, pp. 487-494. ISSN 0101-8175.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0101-81752008000300013.

Type specimens of some of Caporiacco's Neotropical species are revised. The taxonomy of his species from French Guiana, whose type specimens are lost, is considered. The types of Corythalia hadzji Caporiacco, 1947, Corythalia luctuosa Caporiacco 1954, Hypaeus barromachadoi Caporiacco, 1947 and Naubolus melloleitaoi Caporiacco, 1947 are redescribed.The following new synonymies are established: Freya guianensis Caporiacco,1947 = Chira spinipes (Taczanowski, 1871) syn. nov.; Hypaeus bivittatus Caporiacco, 1947 = Hypaeus barromachadoi Caporiacco, 1947 syn. nov. New combinations are:Agelista petrusewiczi Caporiacco,1947 = Noegus petrusewiczi (Caporiacco,1947) comb. nov. .;Albionella chickeringi Caporiacco, 1954 = Mago chickeringi (Caporiacco,1954) comb. nov.;Asaracus pauciaculeis Caporiacco,1947 = Mago pauciaculeis (Caporiacco, 1947) comb. nov.; Cerionesta leucomystax Caporiacco, 1947 = Sassacus leucomystax (Caporiacco, 1947) comb. nov.; Lapsias guianensis Caporiacco, 1947 = Cobanus guianensis (Caporiacco, 1947) comb. nov.; Phiale modestissima Caporiacco, 1947 = Asaracus modestissimus (Caporiacco, 1947) comb. nov. The species Noegus lodovicoi sp. nov. is also described, based on an ex-syntype of Agelista petrusewiczi. The following nominal species are considered species inquirendae: Albionella guianensis Caporiacco, 1954, Alcmena trifasciata Caporiacco, 1954, Amycus effeminatus Caporiacco, 1954, Capidava variegata Caporiacco, 1954, Corythalia variegata Caporiacco, 1954, Dendryphantes coccineocinctus Caporiacco, 1954, Dendryphantes gertschi Caporiacco, 1947, Dendryphantes spinosissimus Caporiacco, 1954, Ilargus modestus Caporiacco, 1947, Lapsias melanopygus Caporiacco, 1947 = Frigga melanopygus (Caporiacco, 1947) comb. nov., Lurio splendidissimus Caporiacco, 1954, Nagaina modesta Caporiacco, 1954, Amycus patellaris (Caporiacco, 1954), Phidippus triangulifer Caporiacco, 1954 and Tutelina iridea Caporiacco, 1954.
