Abstract:
The present paper deals with five species of jumping spiders (Araneae: Salticidae) of Hong Kong collected by Miss Wu Kar-yee in 1995. Of them, Bianor aeneiceps is newly recorded from Hong Kong and other four species are considered new to science. Type specimens are deposited in the University of Hong Kong. All measurements given are in millimeters. The diagnoses of the new species are given below:
Bianor hongkong sp. nov. (Fig.1)
Holotype: , Ho Sheung Heung, August 21, grassland, pitfall trapping.
Total length of the female 3.16. The new species may be readily distinguished from all known species of the genus, such as Bianor hotingchiechi Schenkel, 1963, by the shape of carapace, the color pattern of the abdomen as well as the structure of vulva.
Icius hongkong sp. nov. (Fig. 2)
Holotype: , Sham Chung, November 17, wetland, sweeping.
Total length of the female 3.97. The new species resembles Icius orientalis Zabka, 1985, but differs from the latter in having a black stripe along th distal part of femur to the distal end of metatarsus, also in the color pattern of abdomen as well as the detailed structure of vulva.
Langora hongkong sp. nov. (Fig.3)
Holotype: , Hong Kong (no definite locality), July 24, grassland, pitfall trapping.
Total length of the male 5.70. The new species is similar to Langora bhutanica Proszynski, 1978, but may be readily distinguished from the latter by the tibia, metatarsus and tarsus of the first leg totally black brown in color, the ventral surface of palpal tibia with a round process rather than a lower and shorter one.
Pancorius hongkong sp. nov. (Fig.4)
Holotype: , Ho Pui, August 21, grassland, pitfall trapping.
Total length of the female 5.40. The new species is similar to Pancorius minutus Zabka, 1985, but differs from the latter in the color pattern of whole body and in the detailed structure of vulva.
