Abstract

Three ant-like salticid genera, Enoplomischus Giltay, Kima Peckham & Peckham and Leptorchestes Thorell are revised. Kima is removed from the synonymy of Leptorchestes and revalidated. Three new species are described: Kima montana, Leptorchestes algerinus and L. separatus. Two specific names are synonymised: Enoplomischus chattoni Berland & Millot = E. ghesquieri Giltay and Leptorchestes halogena Metzner = L. mutilloides (Lucas). One new combination is proposed (K. reimoseri ex L. reimoseri). A lectotype for L. peresi is designated. L. semirufus Simon is regarded as nomen dubium. Identification keys are provided. A comparison of morphological features of the three genera indicates that Kima and Leptorchestes are more closely related to each other than either of them is to Enoplomischus. However, it seems still justified to place all three genera in the subfamily Leptorchestinae (sensu Simon 1901).
