Evarcha Simon, 1902


Evarcha Simon, 1902 

Type species: Araneus falcatus Clerk, 1758  , by subsequent designation.

Remarks. A widespread genus found from the Palaearctic and Africa to southern Asia and the Pacific. A single Evarcha  species, E. infrastriata (Keyserling, 1881)  , has previously been reported from Australia ( Żabka 1993; Richardson & Żabka 2015). The genus contains over a hundred, quite varying, species and is in need of revision. As presently constituted, it may include several genera ( Żabka 1993; W. Maddison, pers. com.).
