X. e. Simon, 1880: 107, plate 3, fig. 6 (♀). Ono et al. 1990: 10, figs 17–19 (♂♀); Song & Zhu 1997: 81, figs 51 A–D (♂♀); for full list of synonymies see Platnick (2014).

X. fagei Schenkel, 1963: 218 , fig 123 (♀). Syn. n.

Type material. Holotype ♀ [examined], with dissected epigyne (epigyne was lost during manipulations). Vial labels: “Hangtoheou A. Pichon” and “Potanin 85 ”. Text data “Hangtseheou, Tschekiang, 1925 ”. Data in the introduction refer correspondingly to “Hangtscheu, Tschekiang, A. Pichon, Comm. de Douane, 1925 ” and data for “Potanin 85 ” are lacking. Pichon’s label seems to refer to Hangzhou, Zhejiang Province.

Comments. Xysticus fagei Schenkel, 1963 is a junior homonym of X. fagei Lessert, 1919 from East Africa ( Platnick 2014). Because of synonymy, and accounting for the fact that the African X. fagei belongs to another species group, which seems to have its own genus name Bassanioides Pocock, 1903 we refrain from providing a new name for this junior synonym.

Judging from the epigyne of the holotype X. fagei is undoubtedly conspecific with X. ephippiatus . The figure of the epigyne provided by Schenkel looks very different from the epigyne of the holotype.
