Diagnoses of genera
of South East Asia: Nannenus (4; 3-4). The type species, N.
syrphus, and N. lyriger, the only two members of this genus, were
described by Simon in 1902. Like many genera which Simon placed in his Hasariae,
the cephalothorax is high with the flat cephalus sloping gently, and the thorax
sloping steeply, from the rear eyes. The eye region is blackish with the area
between the rear eyes lighter and the sides and the thorax brown with a whitish
lateral band on each side The abdomen is small, broad oval in plan and light
yellowish in colour with a vague white pattern. Male habitus, chelicera, palp
and female genitalia were drawn by Proszynski, 1984 and 1987. We have also collected
specimens of one or two more species belonging to this genus. Distribution:
Nannenus is known only from Singapore and P. Malaysia. Murphy
