Rhitymna Simon 1897 

The genus Rhitymna  was revised and recognised as an exclusively Asian genus by Jäger (2003). Eleven African species were transferred to other genera (e.g., Olios  , Damastes  ) and new Asian Rhitymna  species were described. In total fourteen species are presently known from Sri Lanka to the Philippines and from China (Yunnan) to Indonesia (Java).
