Thiodina Simon, 1900 

Thiodina Simon, 1900: 392  (type species by original designation: Attus elegans Nicolet, 1849  = Thiodina nicoleti Roewer, 1951  ); Simon 1901a; Peckham & Peckham 1909; Richman & Vetter 2004; Hill 2012; Bustamante et al. 2015; Ruiz & Maddison 2015; Maddison 2015; World Spider Catalog 2017.

Diagnosis. Males resemble those of Cyllodania  , Arachnomura  , Atomosphyrus  , Hyetussa  and Tartamura  in having spine-like setae on the anterior surface of male chelicera ( Figs 8A ‒8JView FIGURE 8; see also Bustamante et al. 2015: figs 4‒5, 9).

They differ from Cyllodania  in not having cheliceral projections ( Figs 8I ‒8JView FIGURE 8), from Arachnomura  , Atomosphyrus  and Tartamura  in having a shorter embolus, and from Hyetussa  in not having a bump in the embolus. Females resemble those of Cyllodania  in the general pattern of genitalia, but differ in having less coiled copulatory ducts and less rounded spermathecae ( Fig. 26FView FIGURE 26). Also males and females can be distinguished from other thiodinines for including species with a strong pattern of dark/clear longitudinal stripes on the abdomen of both sexes ( Figs 24AView FIGURE 24, 25A, 25DView FIGURE 25; Bustamante et al. 2015: figs 1, 8).

List of species (chronological order):

1. Thiodina nicoleti Roewer, 1951  (type species). 2. Thiodina minuta (Galiano, 1977)  comb. nov. 3. Thiodina firme  sp. nov.

4. Thiodina perian  sp. nov.
