Volume: 64
Pages: 41-57.

Abstract: Jumping spiders with a remarkable, unique carapace shape are discussed. The genera Leptathamas Balogh, 1980 and Furculattus Balogh, 1980 are redescribed and illustrated, and the unknow male of Leptathamas paradoxus Balogh, 1980 is described for the first time. Comparison is made to other genera with four eye rows [Leptathamas Balogh, 1980, Athamas O. P. - Cambridge, 1877 and Bulolia Zabka, 1996), as they may be related. Athamas debakkeri sp. n. is described from New Ireland. New distributional data of the taxa mentioned are presented. With 24 original drawings and 14 photos.
