dc.description.abstract "The 26 species of the celer group of Anyphaena known from Mexico and Central America are diagnosed and described. Modifications of the leg spination pattern and of genitalic sclerites are discussed. The use of claw tuft structure as a diagnostic character of the Anyphaenidae is investigated with scanning electron microscopy; differences from the Clubionidae in the number and orientation of the component setae are demonstrated. Fourteen new species are described: alamos, cielo, cortes, cumbre, encino, felipe, morelia, obregon, otinapa, salto, tancitaro, tehuacan, wanlessi, and xochimilco. Anyphaena excepta O.P.-Cambridge is newly synonymized with subgibba O.P.-Cambridge. The females of gibba O.P.-Cambridge, plana F.O.P.-Cambridge, and trifida F.O.P.-Cambridge are described for the first time"--P. [1]. en_US
