Lapsias Simon, 1900


Lapsias Simon, 1900  

Currently 6 described species are assigned to the genus ( Platnick, 2005). The palpus of the type species ( L. estebanensis Simon   ) is shown in Fig. 1 View FIGURE 1 (type specimen, MNHN). The palpi are similar in Simon's four species (type specimens in MNHN examined; Galiano, 1963), with a small curved fingerlike median apophysis and a fairly short embolus. As in other lapsiines, the females of Lapsias   ( L. ciliatus Simon   and L. cyrboides Simon   examined) have a claw on the tarsus of the palpus.
