dc.description.abstract "The 12 known species of Eilica are diagnosed and described. The genera Laronia Simon, Gnaphosoides Hogg, and Caridrassus Bryant are newly synonymized with Eilica. The genus is newly recorded from Jamaica, Honduras, Panama, Chile, and South Africa. The existence of a significant Australian fauna is established with the transfer of one species from Gnaphosoides and the description of three others. Five specific names are newly synonymized: variegata (Simon) and maculipes (Vellard), both with modesta Keyserling, and purpusi (Roewer), reynosana (Gertsch and Davis), and wheeleri (Bryant), all with bicolor Banks. Eilica trilineata (Mello-Leitão) is removed from the synonymy of variegata and considered a valid species. Five new species are described: chickeringi from Panama, fusca from South Africa, and contacta, rotunda, and serrata from Australia"--P. [1]. en_US
