Taphiassa impressa Simon, 1880: 172   . Roewer, 1942: 414. Bonnet, 1959: 4238. Levi & Levi, 1962: 29, figs 312–313. Brignoli, 1980: 730. Platnick, 2009.

Type material. Holotype female:‘Nouméa’, New Caledonia, E. Simon ( MNHN AR3747 View Materials ).  

Remarks. Female specimens of Taphiassa   examined from Mont Koghis, Col des Rousettes and Aoupinié (AMNH) are very similar to, and may be conspecific with, the holotype female of Taphiassa impressa   . Males are required, however, to determine whether these populations are indeed conspecific, or whether they represent a complex of closely related species. New Caledonia has a diverse taphiassine fauna, with at least five new species of Taphiassa   known from montane habitats (e.g. Mont Do, Mont Dzumac, Mont Mandjélia, Mont Panié) and offshore islands (e.g. Île des Pins) (M. Rix, unpubl. data).
