Lapsias Simon, 1900  

Lapsias Simon, 1900: 383   ; type species L. estebanensis Simon, 1900: 383   .

Note: New genera could be created for L. quimbaya   sp. nov., L. tayrona   sp. nov. and L. canandea Maddison, 2012   given that their palp conformation is very distinctive from the type species of Lapsias   , L. estebanensis Simon, 1900   , and its close relatives L. lorax Maddison, 2012   , L. tovarensis Simon, 1901   , L. cyrboides Simon, 1900   and L. ciliatus Simon, 1900   . However, this differentiation is not clear in females, and epigynes of L. lorax   , L. tayrona   sp. nov. and L. guamani Maddison, 2012   are all similar. On the other hand, males of L. tequendama   sp. nov., L. iguaque   sp. nov. and L. walekeru   sp. nov. seem to be more related to L. cyrboides   and L. ciliatus   because they share a robust embolus that arises prolateraly and distally at the bulb. Based on that, it may be prudent to include the five new species described herein in Lapsias   to avoid creating uncertainty in the tribe until their phylogenetic relationships are better understood.
