The lynx spider genus oxyopes in mexico and central america araneae oxyopidae

Psyche (Cambridge) 82(2): 189-243

The lynx spider genus oxyopes in mexico and central america araneae oxyopidae

Some species of Oxyopes are extremely abundant, comprising up to 20% of total spiders taken by vegetation sweeping in some coastal areas of Guerrero and Veracruz, Mexico. All observed specimens were diurnal. The 16 spp. from Mexico and Central America can be combined into 5 distinct groups based primarily upon body shape, color pattern, relative length of legs and structure of male and female reproductive organs. Separate keys are provided for males and females. Species descriptions include distributional maps. New species include O. chiapas, from Chiapas, Mexico; O. summus, from La Irma, Costa Rica and the Canal Zone, Panama; O. panther, from Arizona [USA] and Chihuahua and Durango, Mexico; O. ocelot, from Puebla, Morelos, Jalisco, Colima, and Guerrero, Mexico. O. acutus and O. actophilus are considered nomen dubium. [The remaining species discussed are O. acleistus Chamberlin, O. occidens Brady, O. bifidus F.O.P.-Cambridge, O. bifissus F.O.P.-Cambridge, O. tibialis F.O.P.-Cambridge, O. apollo Brady, O. tridens Brady, O. felinus Brady, O. cornutus F.O.P.-Cambridge, O. scalaris Hentz, O. salticus Hentz and O. flavus Banks.].
