Revision of Indian Spiders of the genus Cyrtarachne (Argiopidae : Arachnida) BY B. K. TiKADER {With five text-figures) Introduction The Oriental spiders of the genus Cyrtarachne were first described by Thorell (1895). Pocock (1900) recorded two known species of the genus and described one new species. Two known and three new species in the collections of the Zoological Survey of India are described in this paper. Family Argiopidae Genus Cyrtarachne Thorell (Type: Cyrtogaster grubei Keyserling, 1864) 1868. Cyz-rarac/iw^, Thorell, EUG. RESA. zooL. ARACH. p. 10. 1895. Cyrtarachne, Simon, hist. nat. araign. 1, p. 880. 1895. Cyrtarachne Thorell, spiders of burma, p. 201. 1900. Cyrtarachne, Pocock, fauna of British india, arachnida p. 228. This genus was erected by Thorell to include Cyrtogaster grubei Keyserling, 1864. The name Cyrtogaster being preoccupied in Keyserling, Thorell proposed Cyrtarachne in the year 1868. He has given a detailed diagnosis in his book spiders of burma. Characters, Carapace unarmed, convex, median eyes not very prominent, the ocular quadrangle generally slightly wider than long, laterals contiguous. Abdomen large, wider than long, integument leathery, strongly overlapping the posterior region of cephalothorax in front. Chelicerae subapically with outer row of large teeth, which differ in size and inner row of variable number of smaller teeth.
