"The genus Zelotes is redefined to include those gnaphosids with a preening comb on metatarsi III and IV and an intercalary sclerite situated prolaterally between the tegulum and terminal apophysis on the male palp. The 58 known American species, found from Alaska and northern Canada to southern Mexico and Jamaica, are placed in three species groups with 13 subgroups. Cladograms, keys, diagnoses, descriptions, illustrations, scanning electron micrographs, locality records, and distribution maps are provided. The American species Z. fratris is removed from the synonymy of the European Z. subterraneus (C.L. Koch), but three other European species (Z. kodaensis Miller and Buchar, Z. pallidus (O.P.-Cambridge), and Z. nilicola (O.P.-Cambridge)) are newly recorded from America. Apparently introduced populations of the southwestern species Z. reformans Chamberlin are newly recorded from Peru and Hawaii. Eleven specific names are newly synonymized: Z. pallidenotatus Mello-Leitão with Eilica modesta Keyserling; Z. chicano Gertsch and Riechert with Z. lasalanus Chamberlin; Z. inheritus Kaston with Z. pullus (Bryant); Z. pullatus fox with Z. tuobus Chamberlin; Z. calvanisticus Chamberlin and Z. protestans Chamberlin, both with Z. monachus Chamberlin; Z. omissus Chamberlin with Z. perditus Chamberlin; Z. montereus Chamberlin with Z. discens Chamberlin; Z. nannus Chamberlin and Gertsch with Z. nannodes Chamberlin; Z. kodaensis Miller and Buchar with Z. puritanus Chamberlin; and Z. circumspectus (Simon) with Z. pallidus (O.P.-Cambridge). The males of Z. gynethus Chamberlin, Z. discens Chamberlin, Z. mayanus Chamberlin and Ivie, Z. monodens Chamberlin, and Z. reformans Chamberlin, and the females of Z. pullus (Bryant), Z. pseustes Chamberlin, Z. anglo Gertsch and Riechert, Z. petrophilus Chamberlin, and Z. nilicola (O.P.-Cambridge) are described for the first time. Thirty new species are described"--P. 99.
