Epeus Peckham & Peckham, 1886

Epeus Peckham & Peckham, 1886: 271 , 334.

Type species. – Evenus tenera Simon, 1877 , by original designation; Zabka, 1985: 214; Peng et al., 1993: 48.

Diagnosis. – The genus is similar to Plexippoides in epigynum with a shallow depression, long copulatory duct forming several loops; palpal organ with outgrowth of cymbium and auricular outgrowth of palpal bulb. However, it differs from the latter in: cephalothorax distinctly tall, outgrowth of cymbium long and located at outside or front of the tibial apophysis, auricular outgrowth at central or back part of the palpal bulb.

Remarks. – Members of this genus are mainly distributed in South-east Asia. Up to now, 11 species have been recorded in the world ( Platnick, 2003), not including the new species described in this paper.
