Simaetha Thorell, 1881  

Simaetha Thorell, 1881: 520   .

Type species: Simaetha thoracica Thorell, 1881   , by original designation; Zabka, 1994: 500.

Diagnosis. – Spiders of this genus resemble those of Simaethula   , but can be distinguished from the latter by: PLEs about middle of carapace, PMEs not much farther from PLEs than from ALEs, sternum of male with conical prominence. This genus is also similar to Stertinius   , but the difference

between them is still unclear for the type species of Stertinius   lacking reliable diagnostic illustration and description.

Remarks. – A total of 20 species has been reported in the world (Prószynski ´, 2002), being distributed in Australia, Africa ( Congo), South and South-east Asia.
