Conothele Thorell, 1878


Genus Conothele Thorell, 1878 

Type. Conothele malayana ( Doleschall, 1859)  : 5, pl. 6, figure 8 (described female).

Remarks: The genus Conothele  is morphologically similar to the genus Ummidia Thorell, 1875  , but they show distinct geographical distributions. Although Conothele  spiders are distributed in the Oriental and Australian regions, Ummidia  spiders are largely restricted to New World and the Mediterranean region ( Haupt 2006; World Spider Catalog 2018).
