Bathippus Thorell, 1892

Bathippus Thorell, 1892: 401 .

Type species. – Plexippus macrognathus Thorell, 1881 , by subsequent designation.

Diagnosis. – This genus is so similar to Canama that Prószynski´ (1987) suggested merging Canama with Bathippus . However, the studies by Davies & Zabka (1989) led to different conclusions, and indicated that they differed in the cheliceral and epigynal structure. Female epigynum of Bathippus with two depressions divided by a median ridge, spermatheca large and round, male chelicera lacking the bifurcated tooth on retromargin; whereas in Canama , female epigynum with only one large depression, spermatheca not distinctly inflated, and male chelicera with a bifurcated retromarginal tooth.

Remarks. – Up to now, 28 species have been recorded in the world (Prószynski ´, 2002), not including the 3 new species reported in this paper. Members of this genus are mainly distributed in the South-east Asia, Australia (Queensland) and New Caledonia.
